Abstract

Teachers’ leadership learning should arguably commence in the initial stages of their pre-service education. However, the scope for leadership learning in pre-service teacher preparation is questionably less prominent. This paper presents findings from the first phase of an ongoing qualitative research study that is exploring the extent of leadership learning in pre-service teacher education in three education systems (i.e. Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland and Scotland). It discusses participants’ receptivity and challenges of leadership learning at the pre-service and early career stages. The paper highlights the need for strengthening leadership elements in pre-service teacher education programmes and for developing supportive structures and cultures within and beyond schools, to promote leadership learning for teachers.
