Continuing Professional Development of Vocational Teachers and Trainers in the Western Balkans and Turkey

This study examines continuing professional development (CPD) for vocational teachers and trainers across the seven countries that make up the Western Balkan and Turkey region. The study aims to inform policy makers and responsible agencies about the extent and character of provision and demand, but also to reveal how these are shaped and contextualised by the regulations and institutions in each country. The report is based on seven national reports published in 2016. The evidence was gathered through a survey of more than 4 000 teachers and associates, 7 literature reviews and 79 interviews with representatives of key stakeholders in the seven countries.
