    We live in a time of many social, economic and technological changes, there is a variety of new novelties, various introduction of innovations. All this is reflected in the schools which requires changes both in the teaching of teachers and in their own learning and professional development. The learning organization represents a good response to the demands of teacher continuing learning, as it is the basis for promoting professional development and thus quality teaching of teachers. Schools as learning organizations support the mutual cooperation of teachers, joint planning and evaluation of work. The theoretical part of the master thesis we define the concept of a learning organization, the school as a learning organization and the characteristics thereof (of that). We cited the reasons for the creation of a learning school, we defined the concept of professional development, teacher professional development models and factors that teacher professional development, promote or hinder. In the empirical part we carried out a qualitative survey in which we highlighted three content sections, namely the learning organization, the teacher's professional development and the connection of the learning organization and the teacher's professional development. We conducted semi-structured interviews. The survey included 12 teachers. According to the participants, the basic professional tasks of the teacher are learning, education and upbringing of a child. They cooperate very well within the collective at school. Collaboration takes place between class and subject teachers, in assets, study groups, conferences and projects. We have found that most teachers see the advantages of employee collaboration. Among the disadvantages of cooperation among teachers they highlight the need for adaptation, non-acceptance of opinions and lack of time. Teachers are aware of the importance of their professional development and the various factors that influence it. Most teachers are aware of the links between the learning school and the professional development of the teacher, they indicate the influence of the individual on the design of the learning school, the influence of the school on the learning and development of the individual.
