Description

Bachelor of Education + Master of Education -> Teaching at Vocational Schools

The programme Teaching at Vocational Schools at the TU Darmstadt consists of two connected study programmes:

  • first, the Bachelor of Education programme (6 semesters; vocational field of study) and
  • subsequently, the Master of Education programme (4 semesters; subject of general education/subject studies).
  • The two subjects are supplemented by the educational and social sciences with the practical school studies 1 and the didactics of the subjects.

Only the completion of both the Bachelor of Education and the Master of Education is equivalent to the first state examination in the state of Hesse and therefore mandatory for the admission to the preparatory period (teaching practice) or the teaching profession.

Teachers at vocational schools give lessons in subjects of general education as well as in theoretical and practical vocational subjects. In order to achieve this goal, extensive subject-related knowledge as well as pedagogic-didactical, psychological, communicative, and social skills on the part of the teachers must be acquired.

Use these tools for a smart start into the programme:

Mathematics pre-course

Online-Mathematics pre-course (alternately/additionally)

There are job opportunities for graduates of the Bachelor of Education in corporate vocational training institutions, in the field of vocational training studies or in the open labor market.

However, entering the preparatory period (teaching practice) for teaching in the broad field of public vocational schools is only possible after having completed the graduate degree programme Master of Education.

Predictions about the future demand for teachers or their employment opportunities are difficult to make as both depend on a number of different factors. This includes, for example, demographic development, the selected combination of subjects or the type of school, the political framework, etc.
