How the idea came about
The idea of creating a platform was born back in 2016, when the Concept of implementation of state policy in the field of general secondary education reform «New Ukrainian School» for the period until 2029 was being developed.
It is about the freedom of choice of teachers: teachers can upgrade their qualifications with state funds in all subjects of advanced training. We would like to remind you that according to Clause 2 of Article 59 of the Law of Ukraine «On Education» these are not only state, but also other subjects of educational activity, as well as physical and legal entities.
There are only two requirements for teaching staff:
for five years, professional development should be at least 150 hours
training should take place annually
And in order to make it convenient for educators to exercise their freedom of choice, and considering that state institutions of executive power in the field of education do not have the right to create certain recommended lists or give special advantages to any of the subjects of professional development, the idea of creating such a common for all, transparent and open space was quite logical.
