|Description: ||This paper builds on the insights gained from the first ESRC TLRP seminar series Learning to teach in post devolution UK, held in Glasgow in November 2006, which examined the significance of ‘home international’ comparisons in respect of educational policy development. At that seminar, Raffe (www.learningtoteach.org, 2006) proposed a framework for considering and analysing the impact of devolution on education policy making, across the four jurisdictions within the United Kingdom (UK), based on five perspectives. For the purposes of the Northern Ireland (NI) seminar, both the concept of ‘Home International’ and the framework will be used to compare and analyse the ways in which the changing teacher education policy context is convergent and/or divergent, with the three other jurisdictions of the UK. Throughout the paper, the term national will be used to denote the overall UK context and the terms local or regional, to refer to each the four constituent parts.|
