Vocational teacher's programme

The vocational teacher education programme is meant for teachers and teacher applicants who plan to work at universities of applied sciences or at vocational institutions/colleges.

The programme comprises 60 credit points. The programme can be completed flexibly through our regular programme. Vocational Teachers' Development Programme 2020 - 2021 (pdf)

The teacher education programme combines a strong theoretical foundation with an investigative and developmental approach to teaching and the student-teacher experience. It has a special emphasis on the integration of theory and practice, as well as on encouraging students to participate developmental efforts in their own institutions. It fosters an investigative and development oriented approach to teaching.
