Continuing professional development for vocational teachers and principals in Turkey 2018
Professional development of vocational teachers and trainers has been identified by the ETF as a key driver for the improvement of vocational education systems. Teachers and trainers are the most important input in the vocational education system and are critical to the successful implementation of other reforms, such as changes in organisations, curriculum, and development of work-based learning, technology and pedagogy.
In 2018 the ETF undertook an international comparative survey on continuing professional development in nine countries – Albania, Algeria, Belarus, Kosovo, Moldova, Montenegro, Serbia, Turkey and Tunisia – building on a previous survey in 2015. This paper presents the main findings of the survey carried out in Turkey.
