There are requirements for continuing professional development (CPD) for teachers/trainers working only in the framework of formal programmes/provisions of adult education. Requirements for the Necessary Academic and Professional Qualifications of Pedagogues and Professional Competence Development Procedures for Pedagogues approved by the Cabinet of Ministers in 2014 define the procedures of CPD for teachers.
The Cabinet of Ministers has defined that a teacher has responsibility of his/her own professional development: he or she has to acquire 36 hours professional qualification development programme during a three years period. Organizational features of CPD programmes are also defined by the Cabinet of Ministers.
This requirement does not apply to the teachers working in the framework of non-formal programmes and provisions.
