Good prospects with a future for education professionals

Hessen could do with reinforcements in its schools and nurseries. The demand in the childcare and early education sectors is especially high in cities and particularly in the Rhine-Main region.

Early education is very important and valued highly in Hessen. An “Education Plan for Children Aged 0-10 in Hessen” (BEP) has been developed with a focus on the children themselves.

You can start your career as an educator in many different ways. For example, you can become a state-recognised educator by getting official recognition of the (social-)pedagogical training or university degree you’ve received abroad.

If you’re interested in working as a teacher and have an academic or vocational qualification that equates to Hessen’s secondary school leaving certificate (“Realschulabschluss”), you should do your teacher training in Hessen! You can find more information below.
