THE CHALLENGE

To see the diversity of initiatives of civil society organizations that work in the training qualification of professionals of basic education, with the purpose of potentializing this action and identifying gaps, challenges and opportunities for action.

THE SOLUTION

We conducted a study focusing on the civil society organizations that work with continuing education of elementary school teachers.

In the first stage, we identified the set of CSOs that participated in the quantitative research and qualified the elements to be addressed, through individual interviews with representatives of the education sector and public managers.

In the second step, we sent an online form with questions about the organization and about the specific programmes, projects and actions of continuing teacher training.

In the third step, we've analyzed the data of the individual interviews and tabulated the quantitative research.

Then, we’ve invited the organizations to discuss the results in an analysis seminar.

THE RESULTS

  • 86 respondent organizations and 100 programs cited
  • Mapping of the scope, themes and places where the training actions take place. This work helped to understand possible liaisons and new ways to broaden the effectiveness of the training actions.
  • Extension of the debate on the subject
