It is considered that teacher candidates offering their expectations and solution recommendations as well as assessing themselves on the competence aspect will be effective on eliminating the main problems in teacher training. In this respect, purpose of the research is to specify the opinions of teacher candidates on how they evaluate themselves and the faculty in which they study regarding qualifications they possess.The sample of the research conducted within the scope of descriptive study is consisted of 164 junior teacher candidates. The teacher candidates were asked first to examine the qualification documents as well as to identify the basic issues, and to answer a written interview form. The obtained data were examined under the themes of "deficiencies," "expectations" and "solution recommendations." Considering the outcome model, it is suggested that in-service-process should be investigated in more details with new studies on subjects such as teacher recruitment and career development.
