Teacher training systems and teacher qualifications have a large impact on educating future generations that will continue the social life of a community. In recent years, the problems with teachers qualification levels made a lot of countries re-question its teacher training systems and so start reconstructing them to promote social harmony, teaching fulfilment and national development. This is where Turkey, caught attention by making studies for reconstruction to solve the problems with its teacher training systems. At this study, first of all, the teacher training systems during 1998 - 2012 periods were analysed and the changes that happened at that period were evaluated. In Turkey, as a result of this evaluation, it has been clear that the problems with the teacher training systems still continue, the increase in the rate of teachers could not be prevented and permanent solutions to the problems could not be found. The study was completed, by only making some recommendations in order to solve the subject matter. (C) 2013 The Authors Published by Elsevier Ltd.
