Professional development of teachers and managers

A growing number of education institutions nationwide are recognising that achieving and safeguarding quality in education is inextricably linked with the constant upgrading of technical and pedagogical knowledge and skills among administrators of educational systems, at all levels in order to meet modern educational demands. This calls for a deep reform of the professional development of teachers and managers through increased involvement in the teaching profession of teachers who pass the state exam; promoting diverse forms of professional development, intensive training of teachers and training of all managers by 2020 based on the “supply & demand” system to cope with contemporary reforms. In addition, reframing and upgrading professional skills of school staff is crucial  to achieve meaningful and appropriate capacity building practices and leadership that is capable of initiating, managing  and sustaining change.
