Positive correlations between quality of teachers, their professional training and students’ accomplishments are revealed by a large body of pedagogic scientific evidence. The European Union, national educational policies, practitioners and scientists focus on teaching as pivotal prerequisite for quality education. They strongly promote schools’ duties in developing student competencies necessary for adaptation to globalization processes and complex community conditions, where creativity, initiative, innovation and dedication in the continuing education process are as important as obtaining factual knowledge in a certain area. These strategic debates explicitly show that teacher quality unequivocally depends on quality of teacher education, which is why numerous European and national documents address the quality of education of teachers. The aim of this paper is to review the level of compatibility of standards and criteria used to determine teacher quality in the Republic of Macedonia with standards and criteria used in nine countries members of EU via analysis of information presented at ATEE conference, 2009, Mallorca in the comparative study “Teacher quality in Europe: comparing formal descriptions” and Macedonian documents that regulate teacher education and determine the quality of teacher professionalism. Although a trend towards creation of European teacher model exists, unified documents and common designating framework that would define teacher quality are nonexistent.
