ABSTRACT

The present study aims to identify the essential characteristics required for the EFL practicum supervisors from their perspective. The questionnaire validity and reliability was tested through application to a sample of (7) supervisors. Then the questionnaire was distributed to the participants, which consisted of (20) EFL supervisors for the practicum of the EFL student teachers. The results were processed statistically and showed that there is an agreement among the participants in determining the importance of all essential characteristics required for the practicum supervisors. Moreover, there are no statistically significant differences of the perspective of the participants due to the academic qualification, its type and number of years of experience. The study recommended that the essential characteristics required for the practicum supervisors should be a prerequisite for choosing supervisor from the English Language Department, training courses should be held for the supervisors in order to raise their efficiency, and a special guide for the practicum supervisors should be developed.
