Thirteen of Teach For Bulgaria’s training programs were included in the professional development training register for teachers and principals. The register contains all training programs which have been approved by the Ministry of Education and Science. Teach For Bulgaria’s training programs were approved and included in the register in January of 2019. Each of the newly-approved trainings has theoretical and practical modules and provides professional development credits for teachers and principals who manage to complete it successfully.

The approved programs cover the majority of the trainings which are part of Teach For Bulgaria’s leadership and professional development program.

Teach For Bulgaria’s intensive summer training a.k.a. Summer Institute is among the 13 newly-approved programs. Some of the other approved modules can help teachers create a vision for student development, establish a supportive classroom culture, plan interactive lessons, track student progress, make efficient and relevant assessments, etc.

All teacher trainers who lead these programs are education experts and Teach For Bulgaria alumni.
They are experienced professionals who constantly develop their expertise by working directly in the classroom, doing extensive research, conducting studies and experiments, and exchanging best practices with colleagues from Bulgaria and internationally.

“The experience we have gained by training and supporting nine classes of Teach For Bulgaria participants shines through in the programs approved by the Ministry of Education and Science. We’ve also learned a lot from the expertise shared with us by many other experts and Teach For Bulgaria supporters such as our partner schools and our sister organizations in the Teach For All global network. Their feedback and valuable professional advice have helped us become more efficient in the way we support our teachers. This is why we are so excited that the newly-approved programs will be able to reach even more teachers and principals who support their students on the long journey to success,” Ivelina Pashova, Acceleration Training Specialist at Teach For Bulgaria and Teach For Bulgaria alumna, shares.
