Teacher Education


Educating for a sustainable future

The programme welcomes teachers interested in further developing and deepening their professional competencies and contributing to building better educational contexts.

This programme is based on an in-depth expertise gained in Finland and a substantial research-based perspective, which will allow the students to develop both individual and collegial knowledge about the school community.

This Master's programme focuses on research on teaching and learning, inclusive education, curriculum studies, as well as leadership in educational organisations, and evaluation and quality in education. To enrich the studies, this programme also offers the possibility for students to choose from a variety of optional courses offered by the Faculty of Education and Culture as well as other faculties at Tampere University.

The graduates of this programme will have acquired an extensive understanding of the relationships between learning, teaching and curriculum, and tools for building effective learning environments. They are able to practise as expert teachers, mentors or organisers of learning who have the abilities to develop innovative educational practices and curricula. As high-quality trained professionals, graduates will also be able to work as educational consultants in various institutional contexts locally, nationally and globally. Welcome to take the opportunity for an inspiring adventure!
