Teaching is considered as one of the most noble callings in Vietnam, yet in recent years the enrollment and training of teacher students has been in crisis due to a lack of concern from society compared to the previous time and a shortage of job positions after graduation. As a result, it is necessary to reform the conventional model of teacher education and shifting from the quantitative training approach to the qualitative focus. This article presents an overview of teacher education in some countries, thereby analysing remaining issues of teacher education in Vietnam and proposing a model to reform teacher education.
