• Teachers’ professional development

    The continuing professional development (CDP) of teachers is one of the most important approaches for preventing ESL. Improving educators’ competencies (e.g. communication, discipline management and cooperation competencies) implies improving students’ educational experience and reducing their risk for ESL. CPD should intertwine the different modes (e.g. study groups, self-reflection etc.) taking teachers’ motivation, interests and their stage of professional development into account.

    Self-reflection of educators is a key factor of their professional development. It can also influence educators’ perspectives, notions and practice regarding the education of students at risk of early school leaving (ESL). Therefore, self-reflection should be implemented as an important element of ESL prevention but with a consideration of its possible downsides.
