The main objective of this study is to determine to what extent the values held by student teachers at the start of a university degree programme coincide with the values that practising teachers consider important for their profession. Our findings show that student teachers and practising teachers have different value profiles, and that there is a need for specific values education programmes that address student teachers' professional needs. Like other students, student teachers emphasise values that refer to the peer group, friendship and leisure.
