The insights of trainee teachers sought in this research is intended to improve the practicum programs and practices tailored to the needs of trainee-teachers. The study employs mixed method using both qualitative and quantitative methods adopting Action Research approach. The finding of the study established that trainee teacher’s perception of quality teaching depicts four dimensions which constitutes teacher professionalism, teacher management skills, teacher preparation and the dimension of teaching skills. The study also found that mobile group supervision is perceived by trainee teachers as an enabling factor which significantly improves trainee-teacher’s block teaching practice. However, inhibiting factors explored in the supervision process largely impedes quality teaching which calls for immediate attention by responsible people to accommodate the expressed views of trainee-teachers in the policy documents and programs to improve block teaching experience.
