In this paper we will present the main ways to stimulate teacher participation in lifelong education programs, we have conducted during a POCU project, implemented between April 11, 2018 and December 10, 2020. The purpose of this research approach was to demonstrate the role of providing incentives to teachers who participate in continuing education programs. The study started from the general hypothesis that providing the opportunity to obtain some types of incentives contributes to motivating teachers’ participation in continuing education programs, as well as to obtaining very good results in the evaluation process. The research methods used to carry out the research approach were: the survey method and the tool used was a questionnaire on the quality of continuing education programs in which teachers participated; the method of analyzing the products of the teachers’ activity and the tool used was the portfolio for each methodology of the stimulant offered type. The main types of incentives provided to teachers in the project were: providing support tools, performance incentives and reward incentives for the teachers. By disseminating and multiplying the good practices regarding the continuous training process, the quality of the educational act with long-term effects will be ensured.
