Abstract: Since the practicum is highly valued by physical education trainees to be the most important part of their initial teacher training, the role of the Cooperating Teacher (CT) in the Singapore 'partnership' model is seen to be much more critical. This article seeks to address the need for professional CT training and discusses specific knowledge that will enable physical education teachers to be more effective in their role as CTs. The process of developmental supervision for physical education trainees is explored through themes such as adult learning theory and conferencing approaches to promote reflection of the application of the pedagogical knowledge that trainees are exposed to at the tertiary level.
