Product description

Tracing the development of initial teacher education since the large-scale expansion of the teaching profession after the Second World War to the present day, The Transformation of Initial Teacher Education explores the changing nature of teacher training.

Examining the growth of the 'teaching industry', this book addresses key issues including:

the return to an apprentice model

the growing importance of schools in initial teacher training

the continuing decline in the role played by higher education

an examination of the broader socio-economic context of increased marketisiation

a reconsideration of the international political factors driving the reform process; and

interviews with prominent individuals who have been involved with the development of policy

Considering the ideas and ideals that have permeated teacher education and how these have shaped the experiences of trainees on a variety of programmes across a broader international context, this book examines the future of teacher education and the changing nature of teaching, providing essential insight for trainee teachers, school staff and any academics involved in teacher education.
