Abstract
Practicum experiences are critical to the professional journey of every student teacher as they attain their teaching qualification. It is the site of induction and mentoring, intended to support the student teacher in their move from neophyte to graduating teacher. Practicum is considered by many to be the most powerful influence in shaping student teachers’ practice. Practicum is also a key point of assessment within initial teacher education programmes, determining the student’s professional development and readiness to teach. On practicum, student teachers have the opportunity to experience the everyday reality of teaching life, and to translate their learning from course work into applied practice with tamariki and whānau, with the support of entors who can guide and encourage them.
