This study aims to introduce the existing scheme of teachers’ training in Cyprus. It consists of important information related to the preparation of teachers, the entry to the profession and the conditions of service. Focus is on the in-service training of teachers, mainly provided by the Pedagogical Institute of Cyprus, which is optional apart from some training programmes targeting specific groups of teachers and does not affect teachers’ salary or employment. The different kinds of in-service training offered to Cypriot teachers are described analytically.
Key words: in-service training, pre-primary education, primary education
