Abstract: Initial teacher education programmes are seen as the first step in the professional development of teachers. The overall goal is the improvement of teachers' practice. This goal can be achieved through enhancing the motivation, competence, and confidence of (student) teachers in teacher education programmes. Research has shown that the extent to how well prepared teachers feel (motivated, competent and confident) is correlated with the sense of teaching efficacy and responsibility for student learning. This study examines the changes in perceptions (if any) of graduating student teachers' motivation level to be a teacher, teaching competencies, and confidence as a teacher at the exit point of the initial teacher preparation programme.
