Abstract [en]

Method: This exploratory study draw on survey data collected between 2005 and 2016 from pre-service teachers at one of Sweden’s PETE programmes. The data contains responses from about 300 pre-service teachers, who during their first PETE course, has answered a questionnaire addressing their background, previous and present exercise and sports habits, and their conception about PE and the future profession. Results: A preliminary analysis shows that pre-service teachers entering PETE are similar in many respects; they have a positive attitude towards sport and PE, have large experience of club sports and have often practiced sports at a high level. In relation to their conceptions, some variations were found, with for instance different opinions about what the goal and purpose of PE should be (eg. health promotion, develop sports skills…) and the knowledge a teacher should possess (eg. social skills, content knowledge…). Future analyses will illustrate this more accurate and investigate whether there are any differences over time. Conclusions: Pre-service teachers’ conception of PE and the future profession is embodied through the socialization process to becoming a PE teacher. These conceptions could also influence pre-service teachers’ lessons in PE in the future profession.
