Teachers’ Training and Development in Sichuan Province, PRC:The Status Quo and Existing Problems

Yun LEI, Rong-feng HONG, Yu DENG


Our study shows that Sichuan Province has established a modern normal education system with its unique features, in which the courses offered continue to be optimized and practice teaching attracts increasing respect. However, the teaching of professional knowledge and general knowledge about education still cannot strike a balance. The teachers’ qualification credentialing system guarantees professional development; the position appointment system has taken effect, but the personnel quota system needs more flexibility. Teachers’ salary is on the small side. Schools, colleges, and universities differ greatly in teachers’ welfare due to absence of a corresponding security system protecting teachers’ rights and interests. Educational authorities on the whole have experienced growing awareness of teachers’ in-service training, which is rich in form while weak in content.
Key words: Sichuan Province; teachers’ training and development; status quo; problems

Résumé: Notre étude montre que la province du Sichuan a mis en place un système moderne de l'éducation normale avec ses caractéristiques uniques, dans lequel les cours offerts continuent à être optimisés et l'enseignement pratique attire de plus en plus de respect. Toutefois, l'enseignement des connaissances professionnelles et des connaissances générales sur l'éducation ne peut toujours pas trouver un équilibre. Le système de l’ accréditation de la qualification des enseignants garantit le perfectionnement professionnel; le système de la désignation des postes a montré des effets, mais le système du quota personnel a besoin de plus de flexibilité. Le salaire des enseignants n’est pas très élevé. Le bien-être des enseignants diffèrent grandement selon les écoles, les collèges et les universités en raison d'une absence d'un système de sécurité approprié qui protège les droits et les intérêts des enseignants. Les autorités éducatives ont connu une sensibilisation croissante vis à vis de la formation continue des enseignants, qui est riche en forme tandis que faible dans le contenu.
