Teacher education in English
Teacher education in English has much in common with our degree courses, but with the addition of language and literature pedagogy. The pedagogical focus is on applying subject knowledge in a classroom setting.
The preschool and lower primary education degree programme requires 15 ECTS credits in English, and 30 ECTS cr are required for teaching English in upper primary education. Teaching English in secondary education requires English120 ECTS cr as the first subject and 90 ECTS cr as the second subject. It is also possible to study English and another subject first and later enrol in the teacher training bridging programme.
In addition to the courses in the teacher programme, we also offer continuing professional development courses for teachers who wish to increase their competence in the subject, or add a new subject to teach in, or learning how to use digital tools in language teaching.
