This study was conducted to examine whether the teacher training programmes in Belgium (Flanders) and the Netherlands prepare their students for Family–school partnerships (FSP). Findings show that in general, preparation for FSP is considered important and that this topic is integrated into different courses. Most respondents indicated that communication with parents received the most attention. However, a majority of programme managers feel that preservice teacher’s preparation in this area is not sufficient.

In this explorative study, preparation of pre-service teachers for family–school partnerships (FSP) was examined within three teacher education institutions. Findings indicate that preparation for FSP is integrated in other courses. Attention is mainly focused on communication, there is no attention to models of FSP or to address underlying power relationships or barriers and there is no assessment on this topic. In primary programmes, more attention is paid to FSP then in secondary progammes. In addition, secondary respondents articulated fewer positive opinions than primary respondents.
