Abstract:The goal of the study was testing the visions different parties, teachers, HRM professionals and headmasters, have over professional development and how this affects the attractiveness of the teacher job. There was analyzed whether or not consensus is present between these parties in two different schools. Presence of consensus was tested on basis of three variables, the motivational basis of professional development, the amount of control of the teacher upon professional development and the influence professional development have on the attractiveness of the teacher job. Furthermore, there was examined a possible relation between the found degree of consensus and the perceived attractiveness of the teacher job and a hypothesis was stated. On basis of a multiple case study research and with help of a guideline-based interview broadly consensus was found between the three parties. It is hypothesized that high consensus over professional development is related to perceived high attractiveness of the teacher job. Additionally, practical implications are formulated over the best implementation of professional development regarding the motivational basis and the amount of control of the teacher.
