By the initiative of the National
Center for Teachers’ Professional Development an information meeting was held in
First Experimental School on teachers’ professional development and career
growth. The meeting was conducted by the head of the center Giorgi Machabeli
and attended about 100 public school teachers.
During the meeting the following issues were discussed:
- Qualification stages confined by the scheme;
- Promotion from stage-to-stage
- Activities which can be evaluated;
- Evaluation tools for teachers.
The aim of the meeting was to inform teachers and provide them with
all necessary details as well as listen to their notes and foresee them.
Continuous professional development is a process which helps
teachers to face challenges existing in the profession. Through involvement in
the professional development scheme, teachers are given opportunity to enhance qualification
and promote status thus contributing to schools and improving education level.
