Teacher professional development is an indispensable part of a pedagogical career. In essence, teacher professional development is the process of increasing the adaptability of teachers' professional work. It is a long process and is carried out in a variety of ways. It can be done formally or informally. Although teacher professional development is highly appreciated for its importance and impact on the quality of teachers and student learning outcomes, in reality, these activities are not effective in assessing teacher professional competence and student achievement at junior high schools in Hanoi city. Research results indicate problems with the teacher professional development model at junior high schools in Hanoi including (1) teacher professional development not meeting society's needs; (2) teacher professional development has not become a content that needs to be managed in junior high school management; (3) The role in supporting colleagues' career development is still vague.
