Bachelor in International Teacher Education for Primary Schools (ITEPS)NHL Stenden University of Applied Sciences
If you enjoy working with children and you are looking forward to doing so in an international setting, then this course is the perfect first step towards an exciting career! Especially in these times, because the demand for primary teachers at international schools is high and once you have completed your studies, you will be ready to teach at international schools around the world.
During your studies, you will learn what it means to be a teacher by gaining extensive teaching experience in the Netherlands, Europe and beyond. The practical and personal approach of this course enables you to become a highly skilled and fully qualified primary school teacher at international schools.
Jobs in this field are inspiring and creative, but they also require a sense of responsibility. Fortunately, your newly acquired skills can be used to support and teach children of different ages, nationalities, cultures and talents. Additionally, you can communicate professionally with parents and work on your own, with your colleagues, or other education professionals.
