The purpose of the study is to find out how ready Finnish class and subject matter teachers are for the forthcoming curriculum change and for the professional development it requires. Factor analysis and one-way variance analysis were conducted to analyze the data of a web-based survey and the two teacher groups were compared. The results show two aspects considered as important in the Finnish core curriculum renewal process: New Learning Environments and Student-Centered Multi-professional Collaboration. Class teachers showed a greater readiness in using boundary crossing pedagogy, out-of-school learning environments and multi-professional collaboration when compared to subject matter teachers. The finding leads us to contemplate the structures of subject matter teacher education in relation with the goals of the curriculum renewal.
