Abstract: The paper concerns an important issue of language teachers’ professional development, namely its consistent, logical and effective organization and implementation which is especially urgent in view of new professional development policy that is being introduced in developing countries, a so-called “accumulative system of professional development hours/credits”. Due to it teachers received more freedom in selection of professional development forms, activities, places but frequently they chaotically choose available professional development forms without thorough consideration of their effectiveness and usefulness. It has been defined that teachers need some direction to move on their development. In this respect special attention should be paid to Cambridge University which has elaborated Cambridge English Teaching Framework (CETF) according to which teachers’ professional development organization and consistent implementation is fulfilled. It outlines categories of teachers’ professional development (Learning and Student; Teaching, Learning and Assessment; Language Abilities, Language Knowledge and its Awareness for Teaching; Professional Development and Values) and stages of their professionalism (Foundation, Developing, Proficient and Expert). It has been substantiated that this framework can be used by developing countries to optimize and rationalize language teachers’ professional development. Using this framework, teachers can determine the category and the stage of their current professional development and understand what their next goal in this process is. Besides, Cambridge University team has elaborated professional development activities for each category and stage organized into 4 groups: 1) methodical videos; 2) printed matter; 3) teachers’ self-development such as search of new methods of teaching, attendance of conferences, seminars, webinars, downloading resources etc.; 4) enrolling into educational courses elaborated for each stage and level of professionalism.
