Teacher Education

The teacher education programme for adults is the only permanent one of its kind in Finland. As a result of long-term work, this programme has earned reward for its high quality.

A person who has previously completed university level studies and has work experience as a teacher may be eligible for the challenging profession of class teacher. The programme qualifies students for teaching in preschool education and grades 1-6 in Finnish comprehensive school.

A master’s degree is not necessarily the end of the study path – professional competence can be extended into special education. It is possible to engage in postgraduate studies as well.
