This paper, starting from the classic contributions of Dewey and Schon, wants to provide some food for thought to investigate the relationship between reflective thinking, work-based learning and initial teacher education, with special attention to the recent experience started in England called School Direct and the current proposals for reform of the Italian education system, starting from the Law no. 107/2015.

Keywords: Reflective thinking, initial teacher education, work-related learning, education policies.
