Abstract

Teachers have a crucial role in fulfilling quality education. In this regard, their education, competences and motivation are the key factors for successful implementation of PHE curriculum and realization of PHE process. This paper analyses two important aspects closely related with PHE teacher’s effectiveness: the possibilities for professional development and possibilities to extend their competences in teaching PHE at elementary level in primary education. The aim of this study was to investigate the differences in teachers opinions regarded years of their working experience upon the issues related with continuous education, opportunities for professional development and possibilities to extend their competences in co- operational teaching with classroom teachers. The study was realized on a sample of 40 PHE specialists that deliver PHE from 6th to 9th grade in 15 primary schools in Republic of Macedonia. Differences between groups were determined using chi – square test. The results suggested that PHE teachers consider that continuous education and different forms of professional development are needed mainly with to keep step with changes, innovations and new trends in PE teaching, but their opinions are divided when referring to involvement of technology and participation in professional networks of teachers. Regarded the possibility to extend their activities in the segment of elementary primary PHE, PHE teachers` consider it possible, both as independent or as cooperation teaching with classroom teachers. Most of the interviewed teachers also consider that the initial education that they had is give them competences to be involved in this segment. Based on results from chi – square test there is no statistically significant differences in teachers opinions regarded the years of their working experience. The paper emphasizes that professional development and interest for continuous learning is more likely to be related with personal characteristics of the teachers and not with years of working experience.
