It also includes diagnostics of innovative activities development level, motivational support, differentiated and individualized training of teachers, and organization of teachers' joint innovation activities. Based on domestic research, the stages of teachers support are identified. They include preparatory, motivational, self-diagnostic, goal-setting, and planning. Self-realization and intensification of teachers practical activities, independent innovation and a reflective-analytical stage are also emphasized. The means of accompaniment at each stage are listed: direct participation in innovation, research, implementation of innovative projects, contextual training, methodological and psychological support, introspection, and reflection.
