Abstract ABSTRACT The aim of this paper is to know student teachers’ beliefs on the teaching profession as well as its relation with diverse teaching methods. A Likert scale questionnaire collected the opinions of 361 students enrolled in the master’s degree in secondary education teacher training. A descriptive methodology was applied through a questionnaire in order to collect the data. The most extended beliefs concerning the teaching profession are identified, emphasising future teachers’ interests in more practical teaching and student-centred approach. This investigation highlights the importance of including within the curriculum of pre-service secondary education teachers, activities that enable students reflect about their own beliefs regarding the teaching profession for the reasons that they are decisive to introduce changes in the teacher training curriculum.
