Teaching Identity, Professional Plans and Engagement of Pre-service Teachers in Partium Region

Keywords: gender, higher education, pre-service teacher, teacher training

Recent researches show that in many European countries teaching profession is chosen by women from less affluent families, with worse academic performance. However the students’ gender or performance has no or little effect on engagement: more important what he/she think about the prestige of the teaching profession and which values he/she prefers. Our analysis is based on the HERD research study database: interviewed 2 728 students. Results show that long-term engagement to teaching is affected by the opinion about prestige, autonomy, payment, power, asserting options, dignity and public participation. Male students are much more uncertain to choose teaching as a career, but there are no gender differences in the long-term engagement.
