Björklund: Teacher Training Due for an Overhaul

Published måndag 21 april 2008 kl 11.43
Jan Björklund

Education Minister and Liberal Party Leader Jan Björklund advocates a complete reform of vocational teacher training.

Writing in Monday’s edition of Dagens Nyheter, Jan Björklund says that people with solid professional experience should be able to qualify on a fast-track programme. 

Instead of today’s three years of teacher education, Björklund suggests one year for those with experience.  He writes that Sweden faces an acute shortage of qualified teachers. 

In 15 to 20 years, the Minister for Education estimates that the number of qualified teachers will be reduced in number by 50%.  He adds that, ”Requiring experienced professionals to sit three years in teacher’s college is a waste of money and a monumental belittling of their experience.”
