Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
And, worse, 'teacher training' has become a self-serving academic industry. We have a family friend who had obtained a full academic certification in teaching from UCLA while in college but had never used it. Change in circumstance led her to dig it out and it has provided her an invaluable lifeline through the most recent two decades of her life. But it was by no means the end. She has been taking additional courses ever since she got her first position. It was a practical necessity to get and hold a teaching position.
