“Autonomy and Teacher Training for the 21st Century Skills”
Teacher education in the 21st century gains more importance with the growing interest in the 21st century learner. Scholars carry out researches and propose different models to bring excellence to teacher education ( NIE, VSK Model, 2009). Learners’ development of 21st century skills of three Ls            ( Learning Skills, Literacy Skills and Life Skills) depend on teacher competencies and beliefs on autonomy.
This paper will first display the VISK model and the EPLTE; the aims and objectives of teacher training designed by European Profile of Language Teacher Education : A Frame of Reference which has been designed after a period of careful thought and experience (Kelly, Grenfell, Allan, Kriza, & McEvoy, 2004). It will then  focus on Foreign Language Teacher Education Programmes in Turkey. The questions raised by the presenter on Turkish FLTE programmes will be answered in relation with the 21st century skills development both in language learning and teaching, giving examples from 3rd and 4th year student teachers’ performances.
