and Learning International Survey, which is administered by the Organization
for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), is the first international survey to focus on the learning
environment and the working conditions of teachers in schools. It fills
important information gaps in the international comparisons of education
systems and offers an opportunity for teachers and Heads of School to give
their input into education analysis and policy development in key policy areas.
It also allows countries to identify with other countries facing similar
challenges to them, and to learn from their policy approaches. Malta
participated in TALIS 2008 with another 23 countries and is going to
participate in this survey when it is again administered in 2018.
