Teacher Training in Scandinavia.
Seiferth, Berniece
In Norway, where nearly all education is directed by the state, there are 17 teachers training colleges offering three different courses: a) a 4-year course, b) a 2-year course, and c) a 3-year experimental course. Candidates become certified after successful completion of a written examination in Norwegian and pedagogics and an oral examination in one curricular subject. Additional training is required for teachers of physical education and science and for teachers of the handicapped. In Sweden, the Ministry of Education administers 15 Higher Training Colleges. Candidates study 5 to 6 terms including one term of practical experience. After certification, teachers are required to complete 5 days of additional training per year. In Denmark, responsibility for the 29 teacher preparation institutions rests with the Directorate of Teacher Training under the supervision of the Ministry of Education. During the three and one-half to four-years course, candidates study the fundamental core subjects of the Folkeskolen (grades 1-7), pedagogics, contemporary orientation, and civics. (HMD)
