The descriptive survey design was used to find out the perception of pre-service teachers on teaching practice (on-campus) as an initial teacher preparation programme in University of Education, Winneba. A simple random sampling was used to select 226 pre-service teachers from the College of Technology Education, Kumasi. Data for the study were collected using questionnaire and were analysed through the use of both descriptive and inferential statistics. The findings among others revealed that on-campus teaching practice equip entrants with requisite teaching knowledge, skills, experience, efficacy, professional development and support their learning. Lack of teaching aids, inadequate time, poor planning, lack of administrative support, and lack of proper orientation on the role of on-campus teaching practice were some of challenges identified. In spite of these challenges, the programme was rated to be good by the pre-service teachers. It was among others recommended that adequate time and material resources should be provided in addition to effective planning and orientation on the programme.
