The Scottish Teachers for a New Era (STNE) is an initiative to reform teacher education based on Teacher for a New Era (TNE) initiative in the United Stated. The programme, a bachelor of education, is made up of four years of university based studies followed by two years of induction years. The programme aims at developing effective teachers who are capable to enhance pupil learning and achievement in primary school. It is jointly funded by the Scottish government and the Hunter Foundation. While STNE is based on TNE, it responds to the Scottish education context (Gray et al. 2009). This paper looks at the field experience component of the STNE programme and how it supports student teachers through enhanced collaboration, feedback and the alignment between placement schools and the university.
