Abstract
In this paper we suggest that teacher educators in higher education institutions (HEIs) in England are not fully convinced that teaching should be a Masters. Through the ongoing debate with teacher educators concerning ‘teaching as a Masters profession’, it was discovered that it remains difficult for teacher educators to propose a definition of ‘Mastersness’ that satisfies them on a personal or political level.
