Abstract

Recent years .have witnessed moves in many countries to establish teaching as an all-graduate career. At the level of initial teacher education, certificate and diploma courses have gradually given way to courses leading to Bachelor's degrees, and for teachers qualified for a number of years under the older systems the number of in-service courses leading to degrees has increased. These moves reveal a significant shift in the way their work is viewed by the majority of teachers themselves and indicate also a change in the way teaching has come to be regarded by educational authorities and members of the public more generally.
