Prepared to Teach was funded by the Australian Govemment Department of Education, Science and Training under the Grants for National Uteracy and Numeracy Strategies and Projects Programme.
Teacher education in Australia is a large and diverse enterprise. There are more than 400 programs in 36 universities, enrolling a total of about 35,000 preservice teachers (DEST, 2003).
The labour market for newly graduating teachers, pattern of entry to teacher education, the range of courses offered, the place of literacy and numeracy in those courses, and the provision of school experience influence the quality of beginning teachers' literacy and numeracy teaching.
