Attitude, Value, Teaching Profession, Pre-Service Teacher Educators (PSTE)


Education plays a significant role in changing the behaviour, perceptions, feelings, and beliefs of the individual. The ability of a teacher to teach is dependent on their attitude toward the profession. The teacher helps create a conducive and learner-friendly atmosphere in the classroom through his attitude. It has a positive impact on the learning ability of children. The quality of education through pre-service and in-service teacher Education Programmes (PIEP) uplifts the standard of education in the whole country. These programmes help to support and develop the necessary pedagogical skills and competencies among teacher educators. The objective of the present study is to measure the attitude of pre- Service teacher educators towards the teaching profession. The sample consists of 30 Teacher educators. The study uses an Attitude towards the teaching profession scale standardized by Tewari to collect data. Statistical measures are employed to find the difference in attitude towards the teaching profession among pre-service teacher educators. The results reveal that significant differences do not exist between the attitude towards the teaching profession and pre-service teachers’ locale. There is a significant difference in attitude towards the teaching profession among pre-service teacher educators concerning their gender.
