| For training conducted by boards of education and teachers' training centers, there are both basic types of training such as training depending on teaching experience (length of teaching) and teaching ability, and special trainings such as training on subjects and training corresponding to educational tasks. The forms of training are classroom type training such as through lectures and practice, and discussion type training where teachers submit educational tasks and exchange opinions about them. In central training, teachers are provided lodging over a longer term training that spans around 3 weeks. While training involving lodging may be conducted by the boards of education, it typically involves short-term training.
Boards of education conduct training on their own as well as support the secondment and dispatch of teachers to universities and private companies. Recently, the sabbatical system has been introduced that facilitates study by teachers at graduate schools.
