Our neighbour at the Tvind campus, PTG International Youth College is a private and independent boarding school for young people (“ungdomshøjskole” in Danish). It is an alternative school where young people from different walks of life and nationalities can study, work and live together. The school caters for people aged 17 – 25 years.
Two-year course in Social Education
Starting in August every year is the Basic Course in Social Education Work – Practical Pedagogy.
It is a two-year course with six modules comprising studies, projects and study trips. At the end of the course, you will be eligible to join the Danish “Pedagogue” education, on the condition that you have passed all relevant exams. “Pedagogue” is the equivalent to “Social education worker” or “care worker” or “nursery teacher”.
