Observation of secondary art teacher education in the United Kingdom and Australia has revealed a range of differences, including a greater role for schools in initial teacher education (ITE) in UK.

However some issues of concern arise which need to be considered if there is a move towards greater involvement of schools in ITE in Australia.
