Are you enthusiastic about geography and do you like to share your knowledge with other people? Consider to become a geography teacher.
Master in teaching
The best way to do so is to follow the one-year Master’s programme Leraar voorbereidend hoger onderwijs (in Dutch), after finishing your current Master’s programme. This will grant you a first degree teaching qualification for secondary education. That means you will be able to work in the upper and lower years of vmbo, havo, and vwo in the Netherlands. There are entry requirements. You need to have a broad geographical knowledge, especially in physical and human geography. If you have any deficiencies, it would be wise to repair them before you finish your Master’s programme. To do so, you can make use of a special offer of e-modules.
These e-modules are available on Blackboard. You’ll take a module in a standard teaching period. Every week has it own learning aims. Your self-tuition will be supported by knowledge clips and lectures. You’ll stay in contact with your lecturers and fellow students on a platform on Blackboard. In principle, you’ll take the courses within your exam programme. The e-modules are in Dutch.
