FERENC, Alvanize Valente Fernandes; SANTOS, Lucíola Licínio de Castro Paixão; DUARTE, Tarcísia Carolina Roberto Silva  e  MIRANDA, Renata Veiga de. The role of professor/trainer in consolidating the professional choice for teaching during initial training. Educ. Teoria Prática [online]. 2022, vol.32, n.65, e10. ISSN 1981-8106.

This article aims to analyze the reasons underlying the choice of teaching qualification in two different moments, as well as the role of university professors in consolidating the choice for teaching. This study consists of an exploratory research conducted with undergraduate students in Biological Sciences from a public university. Data were collected by means of a questionnaire applied to 57 students, addressing their social and educational characteristics and the reasons for their professional choice, and by a semi-structured interview with eight of these students. The results indicate that 28 students stated not wanting to be a teacher at admission, decreasing to three at the time of the questionnaire application; 21 were still unsure about it. Seven of the eight interviewees defended the importance of the professor, their pedagogical practices, and the relationship with students in the consolidation of the choice during teaching qualification. Professors’ actions have a strong influence on students’ will for teaching, even when the initial choice for the course was only a strategy for accessing higher education.
