Abstract

From a system as well as from an institutional perspective, the education of teachers is dependent on the occurrence of a number of interconnected events which are in turn closely related with the life cycle of teachers’ careers: entry to teacher education signals the beginning of teachers’ careers, and it comes accompanied by recruitment and selection processes and by individual expectations among those choosing to become teachers. The knowledge acquired during teacher education is expected to transfer into knowledge for teaching and, presumably, on improved pupil learning. In all instances teacher education evolves within and interacts with social, economic, and political contexts.
