Before we move into the close analysis of the role it is important to review some general issues about school— based teacher education to ensure that readers feel that their knowledge base is a sound one. School-based teacher education: losses and gains I am, as I stated above, an advocate of properly planned and well resourced school-based teacher education, but I am not in support of the motivation for its introduction, nor do I feel at all complacent that some of the recent gains in the quality of courses will be preserved.

This second group has, after all, many years of school 'experience' as a pupil and has decided that becoming an English teacher will be a satisfying and valuable career. The members of the group have spent some considerable time thinking about becoming teachers and, despite lots of advice from others that they should not go into teaching, for a whole host of reasons, they have still decided to go ahead.
