The aim of the work is to find out how work-based learning should be implemented in the training of future teachers. To achieve this goal, the literature was researched on work-based learning models, modern study environment, paradigm shift in education.A questionnaire was compiled to find out how work-based learning would be implemented at the Rezekne Academy of Technology, and students studying in one of the study programs were interviewed. Based on the theoretical findings and the findings obtained during the research, proposals for the introduction of work-based learning at the Rezekne Academy of Technology were proposed.
