OECD Starting Strong Teaching and Learning International Survey
(TALIS Starting Strong 2018)


The OECD Starting Strong Teaching and Learning International Survey (TALIS Starting Strong Survey 2018) is the first international survey of the ECEC workforce in nine different countries. Staff as well as centre leaders shared their insights on aspects such as professional development, pedagogical beliefs and practices or working conditions, thereby providing an opportunity to identify strengths and potential ways for improvement in ECEC settings across different countries.

The OECD conducted the study in cooperation with national partners in 2018. In Germany, a National Project Management Team of the International Early Centre Education and Care (ICEC) surveyed more than 3000 staff and centre leaders who work either with children aged three and above or with children younger than three years.

For more information on the focus, design and methods of the study, please consult the official OECD survey homepage: TALIS Starting Strong Survey 2018


The OECD publishes results of the TALIS Starting Strong Survey in two separate reports in English language:

First OECD report
Poviding Quality Early Childhood Education and Care - Results from the Starting Strong Survey 2018

The second report of the TALIS Starting Strong Survey 2018 will be published in October 2020.
