China’s Ministry of Education officially launched the Synergized Quality Improvement Program in Teacher Education in 2022. Under the project, 10 high-level teacher training institutions are assigned to 30 local teacher training institutions. Together, they work in a “group” mode to support 32 weak institutions. The project aims to support the weak teacher training institutions in strengthening their teaching staff and improving the quality of teacher candidates. This study focused on the process of the Synergized Quality Improvement Program in Teacher Education from a policy mapping perspective.
