Georgia: Ministry of Education reviews teacher’s professional development system

Tbilisi: In order to support the career advancement of teachers, the Ministry of Education and Science of Georgia continues the review process of the teacher’s professional development system, which means refining and improving the teacher professional development scheme with maximum involvement of teachers.

To this end, important changes and updates have been made in the scheme of teacher’s professional development and career advancement by the Ministry of Education.
