Professional Teacher Education

Become a teacher – study and teach in English

Are you an expert in your professional field and interested in working with people? As a professional teacher, you will be able to facilitate the professional growth of both young people and adults.

Professional teacher education benefits those who are already in a teaching position as well as future teachers.

The professional teacher education is based on recent research in educational science and applies the principles of participatory pedagogy and methods of exploratory learning. The education provides the pedagogical qualification required of teachers in Finland.

After the studies, you will qualify to work as a teacher in vocational institutions and universities of applied sciences. You can also teach in other institutions depending on your own education and work experience. The studies will give you useful skills in various education-related fields such as education export, HR or coaching.

The professional teacher education programme taught in English is for professionals who wish to teach in English and/or who are not proficient in the Finnish language. The extent of the studies is 60 credits. You can study alongside work and complete your studies in 1.5 years (on average). The length of your studies will be determined by your personal study plan.
