Abstract

The views and beliefs held by entering student teachers can be shaped by their expectations of teaching and initial teacher education (Wideen et al., 1998). Whilst interest has investigated student teachers’ expectations (e.g. Hobson et al., 2006; Malderez et al., 2007) little exists in physical education. This qualitative paper examines the entering expectations held by 24 PGCE secondary physical education student teachers. Informed by the published literature on student teacher expectations and the specific purposes of this study, data were collected from participants on the first day of their initial teacher education course in the form of an open-ended survey that included eleven items. Participants discussed a range of expectations related to course content, pedagogy, course structure and staffing responsibilities and contributions. Student teachers should be encouraged to explore their expectations and consider which specific elements align with initial preconceptions concerning their teacher education
