Prerequisites

First University Degree

An initial university degree is required to begin a Master's teacher training program. The exact technical educational background required is summarized in the examination regulation. The examination board is responsible for determining if admissions requirements have been fulfilled.

Language Requirements

In order to be admitted to teaching practice students must provide documentation of skills in two foreign languages. The university entrance qualification typically fulfills this. Students, who did not learn German as a native speaker and acquired their university entrance qualification in German, only need to submit proof of knowledge of one additional language.

 

Career Prospects

The subject technology is currently viewed as a subject that is under-offered. Although only a few Gymnasien and Gesamtschulen offer the subject so far, the state government's current STEM activities are initiating more movement in the job market. The need for well-eduated technology teachers is increasingly growing.

You can find information from the NRW Ministry of Schools about the career prospects for various fields of teaching through 2039/2040 in the brochure Prognoses on the Job Market for Teachers in North Rhine-Westphalia.
