Teachers’ Guidelines

3 Appropriate Tools for Professional Development
3.1 National Policies for Professional Development of Teachers
3.1.3 Continuous Professional Development for Teachers in Sweden
Incentives, supporting measures and funding for Participation in Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Activities
The municipalities have funds set aside for CPD of their staff and decide on its scope. The government can set aside funds for the municipalities and independent schools to support their work on developing the competence of teachers through extra funding to the Swedish National Agency for Education. The state shall, by means of the funds made available to the Swedish National Agency for Education, steer activities towards nationally important areas, taking into account that it is the principal organiser of the school that has the responsibility for implementing competence development.

A recent example is a programme called the "A boost for Teachers" (Lärarlyftet) where the Swedish National Agency for Education (Skolverket) publishes a catalogue of courses for teachers too choose from and which teachers can participate in while retaining 80 per cent of their salaries.
