Summary/Abstract: The article is devoted to the examination of the ongoing changes in Continuing Professional Development (CPD) of teachers in Bulgaria and the role of non-formal education institutions therein. The author‘s goal is to present some basic problems in the implementation of a new model of CPD which emerged after the education reform had been introduced in Bulgaria. The main issues of the normative base are analyzed, and certain problems are discussed mainly in relation to the role of the non-governmental sector in the reform. Conclusions are made on the basis of opinions of 44 Bulgarian teachers, 14 of which are students of a Master‘s Program in Educational Management of the Faculty of Education at Sofia University ‗St. Kliment Ohridski‘.
