Compulsory Education for Head Teachers

Published torsdag 10 september 2009 kl 10.06
Education Minister Jan Björklund says Head Teachers need a proper education

Sweden's future head teacher's or principals will have to have a compulsory higher education for head teachers before taking up the job. And that will apply to those working at private as well as state run schools.

The current head teachers will also have to take the course, which means being a student one day a week for three years. They will among others learn about school law, rules regulating public authorities, how to work towards targets and leadership.

Similar educations have existed before, but never at university level. The first course will start in October and November, when 900 out of the country's 6-7000 head teachers will enter as students.
