Young Teachers


Among the key European research conducted in the teaching community, the most frequently mentioned educational needs of young teacher were social skills. When asked about their weaknesses, they often mention: problems with maintaining discipline in the class, difficulties in relations with students, lack of patience, self-control, as well as being guided by stereotypes in the students assessment.

In many countries, a large number of newcomers to the profession, quit school work, which questions the quality of their preparation during their studies and the level of support at the onset of their professional career. Interestingly, research shows that leaving the profession is often related to the heavy workload and communication problems with students, their parents and colleagues.


OTWE training program aims to equip young teachers with the soft skills needed and necessary tools to address the post-covid19 challenges they face and improve the quality of their teaching.


The training program “On the way to excellence” is aimed at young teachers and includes the following main topics:

  • Interpersonal skills in working with the student
  • Supporting the student in dealing with a crisis situation
  • Communication with the special educational needs student

  • Pass on – how to use your potential and experience (mentoring in the workplace).

The guide for trainers and teachers equips teachers with the professional skills necessary to work with students, including students with special educational needs, and support them in a crisis situation.
