Bachelor’s Degree Bachelor’s Degree in Primary school teaching
The Haute École Albert Jacquard offers a programme which complies with the institutional framework of basic school education in Belgium. During their training, the students get acquainted with the reference documents and get ready to teach different subjects to children aged from 6 to 12.
Society became heterogenous, the school community is varied and schools are welcoming students from different social or cultural backgrounds. This melting pot represents both an undisputable richness and an unavoidable challenge. Indeed, helping each child develop into a future citizen needs expertise: this is the reason why the goal of our programme is to train pluralist teachers who are creative, open to difference and to innovation, active and reflexive as well as as rejecting all dogmas thanks to a rational mindset based on free examination.
Trained that way, the students become teachers who are able to teach with passion in a profession which is constantly evolving in very different and often new situations.
