Abstract


The study highlights the stages of organizing distance learning advanced training courses. It is a quantitative analysis of preschool teachers who have completed advanced training courses under the «Education & Care» educational program. For this research, theoretical empirical methods and the quantitative analysis of statistical data were used. It has been revealed that preschool teachers are responsible for teaching children in preschool and must periodically improve their skills. Most advanced training courses in Ukraine are held in a distance format. The article describes the stages that need to be implemented to organize advanced training courses in a distance format. For the quantitative analysis, Google Forms were used, which contained information about the registered participants. The data for the period July-September 2023 was analyzed. It has been found that 13456 people (preschool educational institution principals, methodologists, preschool teachers) have completed advanced training courses on the "Education&Care" educational program in Ukraine within three months. Most advanced training course participants are preschool teachers (9498 participants), 71% of the total participants. Based on the results of the advanced training courses, 958 participants received certificates, which is 7% of the total number of participants in three months. We believe that a survey of preschool education staff who have completed advanced training on the "Education&Care" educational program is a prospective study.
