Recommendation It is recommended to take up the Complimentary Teaching Degree Programme only after you have successfully studied your regular teaching degree programme and have gained a minimum of in total 90 CP in it already, in both subjects and in the Grundwissenschaften (Fundamental Studies) in a maximum of 6 semesters.
To help you organizing your Complimentary Teaching Degree Programme, the Centre for Teacher Education (Advisory for Teaching Programmes) offers individual counselling.

Teachers at Secondary Schools do not only teach their subjects but work within a greater pedagogical and organisational framework. They find positions not only at grammar schools (“Gymnasien”), but in different sectors of the widespread school system.

Valid statements on the future career perspectives are not easy to be made since they depend on a variety of factors, for example the range of subjects a teacher is able to teach. Other factors include the overall demographic development, political decisions and administrative regulations.
