The data shared in this article is related to several critical incidents that occurred during summer of 2019 during a summer literacy programme where tutors worked with elementary age students in a university literacy centre.
Each incident adds to learning by PSTs on professional behaviour.
The paper will be thematically organised across four critical incidents.
The first two involved conflict between three tutors, broadly.
In one, a student was involved as the tutors engaged in personal conflict.
In the second, the tutors alone were involved, however, the escalation of the situation occurred quite quickly.
In the third narrative, the authors re-story a critical incident that involved the researchers and one of the teacher candidates across multiple moments in the programme.
In the final narrative, model behaviour by two tutors was exhibited when handling mandated reporting.
