Does permanent training for teachers help to improve students’ educational outcomes?

Permanent training programs are tools designed to complement initial teacher training, respond to social changes and student needs and transmit the knowledge produced about educational intervention strategies to teachers. Yet are these programs effective? With this review of the evidence, we intend to provide data with a twofold objective: to find out if active teachers’ participation in training programs has an effect on children’s academic performance and development and to provide clues regarding the characteristics that permanent training programs should have in Catalonia to achieve more prepared and effective teachers.
