Field Experience (FE) in teacher education programmes can take different forms and be visualized as a continuum ranging from being faculty-led university-based, common in Asian contexts, to a totally school-led school-based mode as in the UK context. Moreover, there are debates on the effectiveness of faculty-led FE. This chapter looks into the underpinning rationale and ways to enhance a faculty-led FE. Firstly, the backgrounds of the FE arrangements in Asian and the UK contexts are introduced. Secondly, issues related to school-led and faculty-led FE are examined. Finally, ways of enhancing the learning of student-teachers in faculty-led FE are examined. Copyright © 2016 Springer International Publishing Switzerland.
