Key Information

The following Questions & Answers may be useful in interpreting this indicator and in supporting its implementation.

Components: Which data elements are needed to generate this indicator?

Indicator 2a)

Indicator 2b)
Numerator
: Total amount of funds annually invested in the further training of trainers/teachers.

Indicator 2b)
Total amount of funds annually invested in the further training of teachers and trainers divided by the total number of teachers participating in further training.

 

Reported Subgroups: Which subgroups are commonly reported for this indicator?

  • Registered, or certified teachers and trainers participating in any formally recognized in-service training programme, which may include the recognition of non- formal learning;
  • Age and gender;
  • Sectors/branches, size of companies ( in terms of their number of employees) as well as size of schools ( in terms of the  number of teachers) in relation to company-based training IVET systems (apprenticeship /dual system) or in CVET;
  • Teachers and trainers at the  different education levels;
  • Sources of funding for the training (e.g. EU, public, private, self,  or a mixture);
  • Data sources from different databases would need a common identifier to link data.

a) Share of teachers and trainers participating in further training:

  • Universe of teachers and trainers: registered teachers and trainers participating at any formally recognised in-service training programme, which may include the recognition of non-formal learning;
  • Type of programme: programmes which allow accumulation of a minimum number of credits or hours accepted at national, regional or local level will be taken into account;
  • Scope: national, regional or sector levels, IVET and CVET, public and private, excluding informal but integrate non-formal VET, recognition of prior experience;
  • Coverage: registered, or certified teachers and trainers (for in-service programmes).

b) Amount of funds invested:

  • Scope: national, regional, or sector levels, IVET and CVET, public and private, excluding informal but integrate non formal VET, recognition of prior experience;
