Abstract

This is a case study on the Effects of The Çanakkale Onsekiz Mart University ÇABA Multi-Purpose Early Childhood Education (ÇABAÇAM) Model on the Academic Achievement, Personal and Professional Development of Preschool Teacher Trainees as a result of their experiences as voluntary practitioners within the ÇABAÇAM model. Using a qualitative research model, the research is carried out within a case study-based framework. Following a literature review, the researcher developed a semi-structured interview questionnaire as the means of data collection. The study group consists of preschool teacher trainees volunteering as preschool classroom practitioners in ÇABAÇAM while attending Çanakkale Onsekiz Mart University Education Faculty Preschool Education Teaching Undergraduate Program. 13 Teacher trainees were selected by the researcher for the project. Semi-structured interviews were held with the volunteer teacher trainees between October 1st and November 1st 2020. The analysis of the data gathered was done by content analysis.  Maxqda2020 was employed in the analysis of the semi-structured interviews. The data, as examined by the researcher indicates that the ÇABAÇAM Model had a positive effect both on the academic achievement and the personal and professional development of preschool teacher trainees. Research findings show that in accordance with its fundamental educational goals, the ÇABAÇAM Model is shown to successfully ease pre-assignment teachers' transition into work life by equipping them for their future professional roles in ways which will enable them to better contribute to meeting the quality standards for preschool education.
