Successfully establishing initial teacher education courses in schools requires a careful understanding of what it means to train someone to teach. This book provides guidance on how teacher training can be effective in school-based settings. Essential practical issues are covered including, recruitment, pastoral care and the organization of academic components of a course. It also covers conceptual topics such as:
what makes a good mentor?;
models of learning suitable for teacher education;
the role of evidence-based teaching in a practical setting.
Examples from existing primary and secondary school-based programmes explore good practice and show how challenges to developing courses can be overcome.
