Abstract

Taking into account the postmodern treatment of knowledge as a capital with the highest power and the fact that the school is still the most massive, most organized and most systematized form of education, raising the quality of schoolwork is a constant preoccupation of all countries in the world. The teacher is an important factor from which depends the quality of educational work. The intensive technical-technological and scientific development, as well as the expressed tendencies for democratization and humanization of school education, are serious challenges for the teacher. It is no longer required from the teacher to follow and accept innovations, but competently participate in their production. This is undoubtedly related to his professional development and his willingness to accept lifelong learning as a basic principle in his work. The paper is part of the project "Professional Development of Teachers in the Republic of Macedonia - Situations and Challenges" (2016-2018). The survey covers 398 teachers (primary school teachers from I till V grade and subject teachers) from 28 primary and secondary schools in the Republic of Macedonia. The survey's purpose is to study the attitudes and opinions of teachers about the position and functionality of the system of professional development of teachers in the Republic of Macedonia, in order to improve it. In this context, we tried to answer the following questions: who should determine the aims and contents of the teachers' professional development; who should perform the organized trainings, and what are the factors that can contribute to the promotion of the professional development of teachers. The obtained results point to the need for changes in the pedagogical-organizational setup of the system for professional development of teachers in the Republic of Macedonia.
