tweedegraads bevoegdheid

teaching qualification, second level

Qualification for teaching the first three years of HAVO and VWO. This teacher training generally takes place at a university of applied sciences.

Because a literal translation of the term tweedegraads 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 preparatory secondary vocational education (VMBO) and in the first three years of senior general secondary education (HAVO) or pre-university education (VWO).".
