eTwinning for Future Teachers brings together Initial Teacher Education (ITE) institutions from European countries to include eTwinning in their teacher education activities. The initiative involves 145 Initial Teacher Education Institutions, over 250 teacher educators and more than 2400 student teachers.

The agenda of the first day includes:

  • keynote speech about the European Strategy for Universities and the New European Bauhaus,
  • awards ceremony: introducing the ITE of the year,
  • panel discussion on the Impact of eTwinning based on Student Teachers’ Voices.


One of the highlights of the ITE conference is the announcement of the first ITE institution of the year.


The ITE Award identifies, celebrates and promotes the work and activities that the institution has completed in three main areas: curriculum integration, project implementation and research outputs.
