Teacher educators are educational professionals who actively facilitate the formal and informal learning of teachers and student teachers. Teacher educators have wide-ranging roles, which can include organising pre-service training of teachers, or delivering training and development workshops and programmes for in-service teachers. The role can involve online training and development as well as supervising and mentoring other teachers and trainee teachers. Furthermore, materials developers, educational researchers, managers and school leaders are also teacher educators, as they are responsible for the training and development of other teachers.
