Further Education of Teachers and Educational Personnel in the Project for the Further Development of the Czechoslovak System of Education.
A long-term plan to improve the training of teachers was formulated in the fifteenth Congress of the Czechoslovak Communist Party. The concept behind this new plan emphasizes equal proportions of qualities desired of teachers, including some ideological, political, moral, and psychological components. There has been a shift in the role of teachers, from imparting knowledge and skills toward shaping the entire personality of the pupil. Under the new educational design, teachers will be trained to work at several grade levels and in different types of teaching settings. The new system for supplying teachers with further education consists of three stages. The first stage is compulsory, and initiates beginning teachers into their job. For one year, the teachers are given advice and support, after which an evaluation of their performance is given along with suggestions. The second stage lasts approximately two years and focuses on guided individual studies that the teachers make after experiencing six to eight years of teaching. The aim of this stage is to provide an opportunity to study educational innovations while raising the ideological and political standards of the teachers. The third stage is optional, and is oriented toward the individual interests and specializations of the teachers. This comprehensive system of inservice teacher education involves headmasters and other school personnel, so that all levels participate in the goals of the nationwide lifelong learning program. (FG)
