Want to be the teacher they remember?

Dutch schools educate pupils from day one to work and learn together, use IT and apply their knowledge in real life tasks. In this programme you study Dutch educational theories, develop general teaching skills, get to know different activating tasks and become aware of different teacher roles. With this first experience in mind, you start an internship in a Dutch primary or secondary school, depending on your field of studies. Study this programme and become a real global teacher!
