The theoretical work presented in the present study strives to limit itself to the historical and curricular aspects of the training of technical instructors. Technical teacher training, which serves the preparation of practical instructors in vocational secondary schools is specific in many respects.

A review of the training of practical instructors can be organised along 6 main central points within the technical teacher training. The most important aspect of the analysis was the examination of training content, training structure and professional-pedagogical ratios based on curriculum frameworks. In addition, it is essential to determine that this training was created in order to meet which vocational training needs and which were the problematic points that served the further development. The training of technical instructors is being done in very few institutions currently, besides the training places, the number of students is also small. One of the main objectives of the theoretical analysis is to outline possible solutions and paths for the future and possible directions of the training, in addition to exploring the problems.
