`A major strength of the book is its clear and explicit focus upon research into this newly created context for teacher education, where the processes of teaching, learning and course management are successfully tackled from within a research perspective....The book is impressive in its practical application of a variety of research methodologies to the task of exploring a number of significant research questions which have emerged from the new situation created by the transition to school-based ITE.... A recommended read, therefore, for all those concerned with, interested in, or involved in, current developments in school-based ITE and the research associated with it' - British Journal of Educational Studies

In 1986, Oxfordshire secondary schools and the Oxford University Department of Educational Studies, initiated a new, largely school-based partnership scheme - The Oxford Internship Scheme. From the beginning, this new scheme was treated as a context in which new research questions could be asked and would need to be asked. Published in this volume for the first time is much of the important and very diverse research of the last 10 years in the context of this highly influential scheme: research which both leads to practical ideas for effective partnership in initial teacher education, and reveals and illuminates some of the unresolved problems.
