In this article, the authors investigate the extent to which three postgraduate teacher education institutes in the Netherlands pay attention to and aim to stimulate the development of community competence. This question is approached through three curriculum representations, the intended, implemented and attained curriculum. The study guides revealed that all institutes in some way or another stated the importance of developing community competence by their student teachers. However, it appears that community competence is weakly conceptualised in the intended curriculum. Furthermore, in the implemented and attained curricula, teacher educators, student teachers and the materials showed that there was no systematic and explicit policy for stimulating the development of community competence of student teachers.

This study examined the inquiry processes of two research groups in teacher education with the aim of answering the following research question: To what extend and in what way do student teachers, in the context of a research project, engage in elaboration and decision making during the research process? The results of both of these research groups exemplify how both decision making and elaboration are necessary elements to reach the full potential of a collaborative research project. The authors have shown that a research activity in which student teachers are supposed to collaborate is challenging and requires hard work. Alongside everything else that student teachers have to do for both the institute and at school, they experience much time pressure.
