Why Do Student Teachers Enrol for a Teaching Degree? A Study of Teacher Recruitment in Portugal and Sweden
This article reports on findings from an exploratory study carried out in Portugal and Sweden, concerning student teacher recruitment to Initial Teacher Education (ITE) programmes. It addresses issues such as the motivations and expectations of the student teachers regarding the teaching profession. The discussion comprises two themes: the frame of reference for ITE in the two countries and possible implications for the recruitment process. The findings reveal that female students seem to be attracted to the education field in both countries. What differs is how they enter the field. Another difference relates to when student teachers choose to enter a teaching degree.

The paper describes how field studies can be useful in teacher education. Students teachers participated in a specialty area called Play, learning and development. During this activity, the student teachers collected data about their own and young children's experience and perception of the outdoor environment. The results showed that the student teachers were positive about the involvement of children, teachers, and parents in the data collection process. They also perceived that their knowledge had increased about children's ways of using the outdoor space.
