Abstract: This study attempts to explore the conceptions of professionalism among teachers in AGAS School and identify their needs and concerns with regard to their professional development for increased student achievement. Two perspectives were used as conceptual framework. One perspective is John Elliot's reflective practitioner model of professionalism which is grounded on the discontinuous and unpredictable nature of change and human situations. The other perspective is the Teacher Career Cycle model by Fessler and Christensen. The model places the career cycle concept into the context of influences from personal and organisational needs.
