recognizing teaching certificate in Zurich Canton

Hello EF,


If someone has first-hand knowledge or experience with any of the following, I'd be grateful.


I'd like to teach Math in a public gymnasium in the Zurich area, and have the following questions:


1) what level German do I need?
2) is a Master's degree in Statistics sufficient (not in Math)? (from an American university)
3) can I get my American teaching certificate recognized in Zurich Canton? If not, what is the process to getting a teaching certificate here?


Thanks in advance for any help.

For Nursing I need to be at at least B1 level.

I had to contact the Red Cross, there must be an organisation for Teachers to contact aswell. I'd google and try to find out that way rather than on here.

Re: recognizing teaching certificate in Zurich Canton

1) C2
2) No, in addition to your master degree (and not sure if statistics would be sufficient) you need an additional year of teacher training.

3) Yes, if you meet all the criteria, but I believe it is expensive.
The process for training is as follows: Do your Bachelor and Master in the subject you want to teach (4-5 years), then add on 60 ECTS points for your teacher training (1 year)

It is a bit shorter if you want to teach at a Sekundarschule (Grades 7- 9)
