Abstract: Producing teachers with characteristics according to the profession’s traits is essential in progressing the country into being a learning community.

The experts agreed that the congruity of the curriculum was at a high level. 3. The students better demonstrated the characteristics of the teaching profession after trialing the curriculum. 4.
