This chapter explores the manner in which the professional competences of teachers, established through pre-service and in-service training, and teaching practices within the formal education system are related to the PT phenomenon. The focus of the discussion is aimed at an exploration of the relationship between the characteristics of pre-service teacher training programmes and the continuous professional development of teachers that may indirectly contribute to the decision concerning PT use. The chapter also explores objective obstacles to the delivery of effective and quality teaching practices and the ways in which they contribute to the parental and pupil decision concerning the use of PT services. Finally, participants’ perspectives regarding motivation of teachers employed in formal education to provide PT services are explored.
