Rick Vermulst - Educational minor professional education
This full-time minor is very practice-oriented and offers you the opportunity to learn a lot and to discover your qualities as a teacher in (v)mbo. You will do a six-month internship at a pre-vocational secondary school or mbo school where you will develop teacher competencies, alternating with theory lessons and practical assignments with which you will develop a solid theoretical foundation in the field of pedagogy and didactics.
After successfully completing the minor, you will have a good idea of whether the teaching profession suits you. Once you have also completed your bachelor's degree, you can move on to the headmaster's programme. With the final course you can obtain your teaching qualification. This will considerably broaden your employment opportunities. You can start working in the lower grades of general education (havo and vwo), vocational education (vmbo and mbo) and adult education (bve).
If you discover that the teaching profession does not suit you very well after all, you can also apply the pedagogical and didactic skills you have developed in other contexts, such as educational contexts of companies.
The field of education is multifaceted and broad. No day is the same. Teaching as a teacher in vmbo, mbo, lower secondary education (havo/vwo), special secondary education or adult education is all possible.
During the minor the focus is on vocational education. After the minor, you can move on to the preparatory course where you can obtain your teaching qualification. This gives you the choice to work fully in education or partly in education and partly in business. That's what we call a hybrid instructor!
