WORKING PERIOD  · 6 months of working and living in a town

The national field of practice starts with a six-month period in a bigger European town, where the students aim to experience and understand the reality of social and living conditions of the Europeans by living and working in their town.

Students also participate in local initiatives, study, organise cultural events and carry out field investigations and actions. They identify and meet with young european leaders and carry out actions with their organisations.

DOING WHAT YOU FIND MOST APPROPRIATE TO DO · 3 months

As a teacher, you need to know how to organise your time. You need to take stock of situations and to be able to identify the difference between idea and action – and the difference between knowing and doing. That’s why we have this period included in the teacher training programme.

In this period each student envisions their own ideas about what they benefit most from doing and then carries them out in practice.

Each student decides, individually or together with others, on the background if what they now know and where they stand:

What is the most appropriate for me to do for 3 months?
