This study identifies and discusses whether and to what extent the learning outcomes are achieved in ELT Departments of two Turkish Universities based on the following two frameworks: The European Profile for Language Teacher Education and Framework of Turkish Higher Education Competencies. Findings regarding the contributions of in or out of class experiences to these expected outcomes are also discussed. The analyses demonstrate that not all these outcomes have been achieved and that what happens outside the classroom needs to be focused more to give the trainee teachers access to essential learning opportunities during their education.
