Fifty of these teachers are returning for their second year of study in basic and advanced teachers training tracks. This, in addition to a new cohort of 30 teachers who will begin training as Tarbut Yisrael instructors in the two-year basic teacher training track, and 18 principals and department supervisors beginning study in the principals’ track. The 18 principals who participated in the 2010-11 cohort will return to the School approximately once every six weeks for enrichment seminars.
