    This paper describes a research project that investigated first year pre-service teachers' learning experience and developed an engagement framework based upon the "transition pedagogy". Three components were identified in the framework: a) diversity of the first year pre-service teachers and their transition into the teaching profession, b) design of student engagement and assessment in teacher education programs, and c) Perceived Stress Scale (PSS) Screening and Support System. Teacher educators may find this paper useful in providing greater understanding of the learning experience of first year pre-service teachers. It also offers an evidence base for building support systems and strategies to improve retention rates, which can lead to ways of increasing education course completion rates.
