We need new radical thoughts in order to renew and adapt specific initiatives regarding methods and concepts of trainings and put it into action. </p> <p>Such elements as the increasing cultural distances between generations, loss of social prestige of schools and the education, wide gap between scholastic culture and extracurricular activities or the old style of composing the classes (mixing heterogeneous youngsters coming from different background and different context, so they have different capacities and) and high rates of drop-offs among students require from teachers abilities to motivate students to be active in the learning process. </p> <p>From this perspective a good educator should be characterized as passionate and curious for the taught topics, people they meet and work for, taste for adventure and awareness of topics that might be controversial, which are an integral part of human relations. Teachers should become first of all aware of the complexity and the meaning of their work which has a great social value. Educators need to know their own extent of ignorance and propensity to rethinking each day the meaning of work in classroom. Building the common context with the students and other teachers and complete set of learning process is of crucial meaning. Active and cooperative work is more difficult but more profitable than passive listening to specialist knowledge, already practiced for years by teachers at schools. </p> <p>The project Comenius Regio Refreshment of the policies for teaching staff has an objective of rethinking the service training modalities of teachers in order to request scientific community and policy makers to renew the rule of the school and, more general, education and training system. </p> <p>The society of knowledge increasingly requests that the training system will contribute to facilitating research field through project related analysis at a local level, and to creation of innovative model of training and service training.</p> <p>From elaboration and description of proposed model arises a pool of elements of a modern and efficient service for training European teaching staff.</p> <p>The Teacher: an in mobility profession</p> <p> Profession based on partnership</p> <p> Collaboration with stakeholders at a local level</p> <p> Responsible for increasing the value of research: Teacher A Researcher</p> <p> Comparison of systems and best practices</p> <p> Building a significant repertoire</p> <p>3 corner stones to develop the training</p> <p> work with information, Technologies, knowledge</p> <p> work with similarities: community practices, either in a team or in cooperative learning </p> <p> work with and for a society at local/regional/national/European and world-wide level</p> <p>Presentation of the program and project, Sicily</p> <p>The educative regional institution of Ankara and Palermo undertake a project Comenius Regio in collaboration with schools, organizations and institutions. This project fosters the opportunity of international cooperation between two European countries: Italy and Turkey which are participants to the programme. </p> <p>The project Refreshment policies for teaching staff is focused on development and exchange of good practices between the involved regions. </p> <p>After an exhaustive study actual situation of the professional development in respective territories through surveys, interviews and statistical studies the research has been expanded to the European and international level. Within the space of the project several studies and deepening materials have been produced, exchanged and spread to educational institution in both territories, in order to realize a better outcome in the respective context. Collaboration between institutions of the two regions has been enhanced from creation of an agreement protocol, which will have a positive outcome beyond the temporal deadline of the project, guaranteeing fundamental sustainability.</p> <p>An another outcome of the project is a new conception of a common model of training between the two regions.
