The first and the most effective indicator of professional development is in-service training, which gives one an opportunity to gain additional knowledge in management, as well as basic specialization and improve professional skills, based on reflections on one’s own professional activity. It is clear that in-service training (adult education) has a plethora of acute problems, which pass through all its structure at different levels namely state, regional, institutional, administrative, faculty and student level. The system of in-service pedagogical training due to its content, forms and peculiarities has an unrivaled significance for becoming and improving of administrators and teachers as professionals. For this reason, further development of teachers’ innate creative abilities, as well as those formed during formal pedagogical education is carried out.
