tweedegraads onderwijsbevoegdheid

teaching qualification for secondary education, second level

Qualification for teaching one subject at all levels of VMBO and in the first three years of HAVO and VWO.

Because a literal translation of the term 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)."
