Initial teacher education in Slovenia is today performed at three public universities following the same general trends and challenges seen in other segments of higher education. Internal quality assurance forms part of university self-evaluation activities organized in annual cycles, while external quality assurance is part of a national system based on institutional and programme evaluation and accreditation. In addition, there are some specific demands for teacher education study programmes on the national level. Teacher education is still a nationally regulated profession like in other countries; however, international co-operation has been on the increase and is proving to be an important vehicle for further developing academic standards in this study field and enhancing its quality.
