Re: Teacher licensure in Switzerland?

This is what I found by searching the internet


The English part do not really give the information as shown in the other languages so I link to the German part of the site.

Here you find also an "Information Sheet" on how to get a non Swiss diploma accredited. http://www.edudoc.ch/static/web/arbe...lehrdipl_d.pdf

Hope it helps

When you taught in England did you have QTS (qualified teacher status)? If so, then you will be qualified to teach in state schools here. You have to fill in a quite detailed form about your qualification and pay a (not inexpensive) fee to get yourself recognised as a teacher here.
I have done this and it took months, needed official photocopies of all qualifications etc. The paperwork and detail needed was astounding! I had to provide evidence of what I got awarded for my first degree taken during the first and second years (not even counting towards my degree mark).

Then I had to check info with my old universities regarding exact subjects studied and for what amount of time. My university had never been asked such detailed questions before and were quiet surprised to be asked the information!

It seemed that the cantonal offices of Zürich (where i worked) and Bern (the HQ of this admin) were not agreeing on some issues and I also felt caught in the middle.

As a teacher with many years experience and who has subsequently obtained a masters degree I found who process insulting and, quite frankly, unnecessary.

One thing that was not asked at any point of the procedure were details of police clearance!
