"Innovative work behaviour of teachers is important to develop innovations in vocational colleges. However, it depends on individual characteristics, in particular professional knowledge, professional performance and professional development. To investigate the role of these attributes, a questionnaire study with 60 vocational teachers was conducted. The study showed that characteristics of professionalism are positively related to innovative work behaviour. Aspects of professional development like "occupational learning" and "social expansion" were particularly important. "Metacognitive knowledge" and "reflection" that represent the "metacognitive dimension" of professionalism were considered as crucial. The respondents underlined that when due to changes at work a substantial amount of innovations is required, life-long learning is strongly needed as a part of professionalism."
