Abstract

The skills and knowledge that teachers acquire during their initial education are the basis for enabling them to enter the world of the teaching profession. They must be constantly expanded, deepened and innovated according to the changes and needs imposed by the intensive technical, technological, and scientific development, as well as the expressed tendencies for democratization and humanization of school education. In order to achieve this goal, it is necessary for teachers to possess competences for quality educational work and to have the opportunity to continuously professionalize and advance during their careers. 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.
