Teacher training in primary schoolsAdd to Favourites
As a primary school teacher, you will accompany young students through their middle and late childhood and not only impart knowledge, but at the same time be significantly involved in their educational process and should support it professionally.
In primary school, children not only learn to count, read and write. They develop their social behavior and acquire artistic and musical skills. They get to know values in order to find their way around the world and help shape it, they develop new interests and can expand on existing interests.
The course for teaching at primary schools, which prepares you for the first teaching examination (first state examination), deals with the basic principles of learning and teaching in schools and - since primary school must be attended by all children - successful educational processes under the conditions of heterogeneity. Therefore, in addition to special specialist knowledge, you will also acquire pedagogical and psychological skills as well as competencies in questions of inclusive school development . Various compulsory internships allow a first glimpse into everyday school life.
University studies conclude with the first state examination. This is followed by a two-year preparatory service in the sense of practical school training (trainee teacher), which ends with the second state examination for teaching at primary schools. Passing the first and second state examinations is a prerequisite for qualification for a teaching post at a primary school.
