With the influence of social, economic and political change, the education system has undergone many changes in various periods, which in turn has affected training of teachers. With the recent change in the implementation of the Pedagogical Formation Education Certificate Program in Turkey, a decision is being made whether the students or graduates who meet the requirements can receive pedagogical formation training, regardless of faculty positions. Considering that the training of qualified teachers is possible with the participation of those who want to perform this profession consciously, it is thought that the reason why the teacher candidates prefer the teaching profession is very important. This study, aiming to reveal the reasons for the education of pedagogical candidates trained in the pedagogical formation of this program, is a qualitative research conducted with 243 participants from eight different fields, employed and unemployed, students and non-students, who are studying at the faculty of education at a state university. The results of the analysis of the data obtained in written form asking the participants for their reasons to take pedagogical formation education and to elaborate their thoughts in detail are in general "anxiety for job finding," "career making and self-improvement," "desire to perform teaching profession" and "necessity." Participants have indicated that their desire to perform teaching profession is based on their "desire to perform a profession that they dream of," "desire to gain an additional advantage," "desire to meet the need for the required documentation," and "thinking that professional conditions are suitable." In addition, it is noteworthy that the thoughts of the teacher candidates from different fields differed in this context.
