MENTEP (MENtoring Technology-Enhanced Pedagogy) was a policy experimentation project that addresses the need in EU policies for teachers able to innovate using ICT and for improved data on their digital competence.

It also tackled the need to enhance the uptake of ICT in teaching and learning, to promote stronger coherence between different EU and national transparency and recognition tools, and strengthen the professional profile of the teaching profession. MENTEP's aim is to develop, disseminate and sustain TET-SAT, a prototype tool for teachers to self-assess progress in Technology-Enhanced Teaching (TET) competence and test the tool's impact on TET competencies and peer learning in field trials. You can access the TET-SAT tool here. MENTEP also provided policy-makers with a national and EU picture of teachers' TET competence, and investigate the feasibility of European-wide certification of the TET competence and increase national capacity in running field trials and policy experimentation.

The project was coordinated by European Schoolnet in collaboration with fourteen public authorities in charge of education or organisations nominated to act on their behalf. The evaluation of the policy experimentation was led by FBK-IRVAPP (Fondazione Bruno Kessler – Istituto per la Ricerca Valutativa sulle Politiche Pubbliche).
