Get started as lecturer
Can’t wait to get in front of the classroom and want to work as a secondary school teacher? Are you not sure what this job entails? We are happy to explain it to you!
As a teacher in secondary education you teach a certain subject at a school for VMBO, HAVO and/or VWO.

You enjoy sharing knowledge, working with young people and coaching them.
In secondary education a distinction is made between teachers with a first degree and teachers with a second degree teaching qualification. With a first-degree qualification you can teach at all levels within the entire secondary education system. Second-degree teachers can teach at vmbo (pre-vocational secondary education), in the junior grades of havo and vwo and in adult education. After completing the higher professional education (hbo) teacher training program in secondary education you have a second-degree qualification in your pocket. You can become a first grade teacher by completing a university teacher training program or a higher professional education program for the first degree.
