eerstegraads bevoegdheid

teaching qualification, first level

Qualification for teaching all classes of HAVO and VWO. This teacher training generally takes place at a university after completion of an MA.

Because a literal translation of the term eerstegraads (first level) offers little information for readers who are not familiar with the Dutch teaching qualifications framework, it is extremely helpful to offer readers explanatory information, such as "The holder of this diploma has qualified teacher status in the Netherlands for teaching the named subjects in all years and all types of secondary education."
