Fostering teacher-student relationship-building competence: a three-year learning trajectory for initial pre-primary and primary teacher education

This paper acknowledges the importance of high-quality teacher-student relationships for both student and teacher well-being and proposes a learning trajectory targeting teachers’ relationship-building competence to be implemented in initial teacher education. To address teachers’ relationship-building competence in teacher education, relevant competencies, selected in previous research by an independent expert panel, were translated into specific learning goals, learning activities, and materials in close collaboration with partner university colleges.
