You learn to transfer your professional knowledge to others in a challenging way. Central theme: how does man influence the earth and vice versa?
The training revolves around the question: how do I teach students to understand the space around us? You will ask questions such as: which geographic elements and developments can you find in the landscape and what is the world like? What options do you have to shape the space around you in the future? The central theme is: how does man influence the world, but also vice versa, what possibilities and limitations does the world offer to humans as a place of residence?
Do you have a lot of feeling for the world around you and would you like to pass on your knowledge and enthusiasm for the profession to (young) people? In the Geography teacher training you develop into a skilled, student-oriented and innovative teacher.
Geography teacher training: more than just teaching
You don’t just teach. It is also your job to organize education in such a way that children, young people and adults can use their talents optimally and develop them further. You will learn to familiarize your students with the world and you will work on topics such as cartography and vegetation zones to endogenous processes and environmental geography.
What else do you need?
During the Geography Teacher Training Program you master everything a teacher needs, such as an inquiring attitude, professional knowledge and didactic skills. You also consciously and actively think about your own acting as a teacher, in both communication with students, colleagues or parents.
How do you learn that?
You learn by performing learning work tasks, projects and assignments. You also gain a lot of practical experience by doing an internship and going on excursions. In addition, you follow professional lectures and study literature independently.
In the teacher training programs for secondary education and vocational education
, we distinguish three learning lines:
1. vocational preparation line
2. work experience, reflection and research line
3. training-specific line
Preparatory learning pathway

On average 40 hours per week, including self-study and internship. You have an average of 16 contact hours. As the study progresses, you have fewer contact hours due to internship (assignments).
