Our part-time Teacher Education in English is a four-year programme in an international setting, that has been taught in the English language since 2015. The programme is designed so that you can combine it with your current career, whether that is already within education or in a completely different field. From the first year on, you will have an internship at a Dutch school where you will be functioning as a teacher, depending on your experience. Students who already have a teaching job will use their job as their internship.
