So the National Standards for Professional Development of Teacher Educators in Pakistan are expected to be established to give the importance of qualified teachers in improving the quality of teaching and learning.  Therefore, concentrating especially on professional development in Pakistan, the research explores the current status of teacher educators. The opinion held is that Professional Development requires the number of approaches, modalities and institutional frameworks that occur in the region and it is a process in supporting teachers and their development. The study of various macro and micro-level education programs around the world shows us that the efficiency of teachers is profoundly connected to efforts to bring about reforms and improve the quality of education. This study also highlights very concisely the potential needs of the professional growth of teachers in Pakistan to make our education compatible and increase the learning of students.
