Abstract

The purpose of this descriptive survey study is to identify the background characteristics of entrant teachers from pre-service teacher education institutions in Baluchistan, Pakistan. To achieve the objectives of this study, data were collected from all entrant teachers enrolled in the first year (second semester, spring 2012) of Associate Degree in Education (ADE) and Bachelor of Education (BEd (Hons)) programmes in Baluchistan. A survey questionnaire was developed and administrated to get responses. The findings revealed that most of the entrant teachers are both intrinsically and extrinsically motivated towards the teaching profession. However, motivation of entrant teachers varies as their background characteristics vary. The findings of this study have practical implications for policy-making for pre-service education programmes in Pakistan.
