Abstract

This article focuses on the transformation from student to teacher at the critically important point of teaching practice. This is when students develop their practical skills and form a deeper understanding of the teaching profession in initial teacher training. They need experienced support, reflection and feedback to improve their theoretical studies and teaching practice. Students’ statements were analyzed during the teaching practice reflection seminar in group interviews. It became evident that the most important experience was about self-perception, understanding cooperative relationships and the teaching environment.
