During the second year of teaching, which begins after the end of the internship and the receipt of the teaching license, new teachers and new kindergarten teachers are required to participate in a course aimed at continuing professional development and supporting entry into the education system.

Course structure: 30 academic hours in a peer workshop format, recognized for professional development credits + 20 hours of personal supervision from a tutoring teacher/kindergarten teacher (as detailed below). 

The course includes 10 sessions of 3 hours each, held once every two weeks. The workshops will be held on Fridays/Saturdays in the morning between 9:00 and 12:00. The course is mandatory for all teachers in the education system. It is recognized for rank promotion in the “Ofek Hadash” and “Oz LeTmura” reforms.

New teaching staff employed for less than a half-time position (the minimum for promotion as detailed in the wage agreements) or are employed through associations: the course hours will be recognized for promotion purposes once they enter work under the conditions of the “Ofek Hadash” reform.

New teaching staff who do not work under “Ofek Hadash” or “Oz LeTmura” conditions will be able to integrate into a course of their choice. In the future, once they enter “Ofek Hadash” or “Oz LeTmura” conditions, the course hours will be recognized to determine the starting rank.

New teaching staff who integrate into an additional framework for professional development in institutional training at the request of a school principal – will be recognized for a maximum of 30 additional hours. See the Teaching Staff Portal (Hebrew)
