There are national requirements for the integration of ICT into all pre-service initial teacher education programmes in Lithuania. However, as these programmes are delivered by autonomous institutions such as teacher training universities and colleges, the level of ICT integration is variable. (European Schoolnet, 2009, p1).

Lithuania has a set of ICT competence targets that teachers are expected to reach. There is a national ICT training programme to help teachers develop their skills in this area. These are assessed at three levels through the production of an e-portfolio of evidence. To help support teachers in this process, teachers can use a specially prepared distance learning course to assist the production and collection of the required evidence of their knowledge and skills.
