Aim:

After completed education the candidate should be able to successfully work in school. As a teacher the candidate can teach with practical skills, effectively and emphatically in physics, chemistry, technology or mathematics at the upper secondary level. This teacher's teaching is characterized by great subject knowledge, multidisciplinary and motivating ways that is relevant for applications and prepares for academic studies. In his or her work the examinee can successfully take on leadership roles and interact well with employees, students, guardians, staff and management. Successful work means to contribute significantly to achieving the organization's goals, but not without questioning organizational goals on the basis of ethical and social values. The candidate must be able to act as an agent of change and affect both the organization's goals and methods to achieve them. To teach with practical skills means that the candidate can handle a variety of common teaching situations in a routine manner to be able to put more attention to creatively manage the key moments in the learning situation. To teach effectively means to be able to create a learning situation that has so much positive impact as possible on the learning of all students. To teach empathically, meant to understand and meet each student in his or her specific learning situation. With subject knowledge means that the candidate is well prepared for seeking answers to the students questions, such as "How do you know that?¿. To do this, the teacher has knowledge in the field that extends far beyond the teaching situation, regarding both depth and breadth. The candidate is confident in the knowledge without trivializing the challenge of learning the more basic material. In addition, the candidate has developed a personal relationship with the subject that induces a curiosity and a confidence to deal with unexpected issues beyond the textbook. With relevant for applications is meant that the candidate can give initiated response to the question "What is this useful for?", in other words to motivate course content based on realistic applications and with sustainable development in mind. With prepare for academic studies means that the examinee can help students get solid knowledge and interest in continuing higher studies in the subject. To communicate well with both experts and laymen meant that the examinee can successfully communicate problems, solutions and processes orally, visually and in writing, including through skillful use of information and communication technology, ICT. With leadership roles and interact well is meant that the candidate should be able to shape common goals and in a confidence-building ways contribute to those involved developed and with determination and enthusiasm strive to achieve these goals.
