The education system of a country has a crucial effect on creating a qualified work force. Teachers who are the most important part of the education system play an important role in the development of society. In this context, in order for teacher candidates to perform their profession more effectively and successfully, they need to be raised as well-equipped individuals in terms of professional subject knowledge and pedagogical formation; with positive attitudes towards their profession.
