How effectively does the Graduate Teacher Programme contribute to the development of trainee teachers' professional values?
The graduate teaching program (GTP) is a significant contributor to teacher training. The article describes a study to gain insights into the nature and implementation of professional values of GTP trainees. The findings identify that GTP trainees do have well-established values, and high expectations about implementing them, with varying degrees of coherence between these values and their implementation in teaching, learning and classroom management. There is sufficient evidence to suggest that the highly individualised nature of the GTP does potentially lend itself to a coherent relationship between professional values and practice.
