The results of this study should provide data to evaluate the current system of CPD in Romania. Its aim is to set out the main areas and contribute to the process of revision where the system needs to be improved.
The study investigates the design and features of professional development for teachers' which will be more likely to produce effects on student learning. Research on CPD in Romania suggests that the majority of teachers are involved in professional development activities and that they find it beneficial for their work. However in the context of larger national particularities and characteristics it seems that internationally relevant issues are representing yet a challenge in the Romanian system.
