Exploring Pre-service Secondary Teachers’ Understanding of Care
This study investigates how pre-service teachers understand their caring role and their potential responsibility to care for students. The authors conclude that it was shown that within an Australian teaching and learning context ‘care’ was valued among these pre-service secondary teachers. However, the findings identified student tensions around discipline, boundary issues as well as anxiety about decision-making when faced with various caring dilemmas. Furthermore, the results revealed that these anxieties were underpinned by concerns about the limited training in this area.

Pre-service and In-service Teachers’ Knowledge, Attitudes and Confidence towards Self-injury among Pupils
This study aimed to understand and explore differences between pre-service and in-service teachers’ knowledge, confidence and attitudes towards non-suicidal self-injury (NSSI), and how these variables relate to demographics and prior education in NSSI. The findings revealed that despite their willingness to help pupils who self-injure, pre- and in-service teachers identify their lack of knowledge, training and resources to address confidently self-injury in schools.

Does Training Matter? Comparing the Behaviour Management Strategies of Pre-service Teachers in a Four-year Program and Those in a One-year Program
The purpose of this study was to identify the classroom management strategies that Australian pre-service teachers would employ, their confidence in employing them, and the effectiveness of the strategies. Furthermore, the study aimed to identify significant differences in these variables between pre-service teachers in the final year of a four-year teacher training course and pre-service teachers undertaking a one-year, stand-alone teaching program. The results of this study indicate that the most frequently reported strategies by all the Australian pre-service primary teachers surveyed were rewards and initial corrections.
