Description This theoretical study deals with a concept of power, in relation to which it follows several objectives. The purpose of the study is to analyse the concept of power through its central features and seize deeper understanding of its definition. Firstly, we define the concept of power as circular, situational and reciprocal phenomenon. Following this, we aim to introduce intervening factors, which are reflected into the form of classroom power arrangement and which may play an important role in the power arrangement in classes taught by student teachers or beginning teachers. These factors are consensus between students and their teachers, mutual relationships and context. In terms of findings, the functional setting of power relations is perceived as one of the key issues beginning teachers are confronted by when entering the profession and also becomes a key reason for them when deciding to leave the profession.
