Teacher Training in The Turkish Education System: Reflections of The Pedagogical Formation Certification Program

Zafer İBRAHİMOĞLU

Abstract


The primary aim of this study was to reveal the reasons why teacher candidates who received training within the pedagogical formation certification program chose the teaching profession, and their views on the education they received within the program. The study was conducted in accordance with the qualitative research method, and semi-structured interviews were used as the data-gathering tool. The findings showed that the participants wanted to be teachers instead of pursuing a career in their primary area of study due to the professional advantages that they believed teaching had, and thus, they enrolled in the certification program.
