The Education Minister says there needs to be more aspiring teachers training in the classroom.

The Government's made a pre-Budget announcement of $53 million to train and recruit 1500 teachers over four years.

It includes 1200 places for aspiring teachers to learn on the job and funding to recruit overseas.

Education Minister Erica Stanford told Mike Hosking she's also doing a bigger piece of work on initial teacher education.

She says this announcement gives a flavour of where they're heading -- which is young people training in the classroom, seeing great behaviour modelled.
