Abstract

Since changes to Initial Teacher Education (ITE) in 1992, school–university partnerships for Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) courses in the UK have grown closer than ever. Yet, even with lessened hierarchy and increased dialogue, gaps between what is learnt at university and what is experienced at school remain. Taking Bhabha and Zeichner’s use of the theoretical concept of ‘third space’, this exploratory paper documents the author’s attempt to locate and negotiate a hybrid space where a cohort of religious education (RE) student teachers’ experiences can be mediated, and the gap between theory and practice reduced.
