Teaching Degree for Primary Education
Bachelor of Education (B.Ed.)


For children, primary school forms the basis of their school career; it is here that they discover their first talents and inclinations. Experiences made here shape further learning and life - therefore primary school teachers take on a very important role as enablers and companions. They support the natural urge for knowledge, activity and experimentation.

Primary school teachers not only impart knowledge, but also lay the foundation for children to experience school in a positive way. They motivate, inspire and promote the joy of understanding and applying. With an appreciative attitude for diversity, they mediate between the individual educational demands of the child and the socially valid educational demands. Their approach to children is support-oriented, respectful and takes into account inclusive approaches to learning together.
