Munich Centre of Teacher Education at the LMU Munich
After the state recognition of our Gymnasium, we are a cooperation school of the internship department belonging to the Munich centre for teacher education (MZL), at the renowned Ludwig-Maximilians-University, since the beginning of school year 2018/2019. For the first time, seven student teachers are interns at our school during the school year, doing the one year Intensivpraktikum. The LMU offers this more intense option of an internship that provides students with a deeper insight into being a teacher. To do so, the future teachers got to know the school in a first module in September and early October 2018. From mid-October, they are at our school for one full day each week, except for the semester break. Being guided by their personal supervising teacher, they face all the challenges of being a teacher. We are more than pleased about this direct connection to an important centre of teachers’ education.
Technical University of Munich
Since the school year 2010/11, the Secondary School of the Phorms Campus Munich has been a reference school for the Technical University of Munich. This means that trainee teachers enrolled at TUM regularly do internships at our Secondary School. Gaining an insight into a bilingual school life is especially helpful to them. In an exchange with professors and lecturers, any experience gained at our school becomes part of the training of future teachers. Vice versa, this cooperation gives direct access to the latest research results from educational theory and didactics.
The TU Munich is one of the universities that has been rated in the course of the initiative of excellence for cutting-edge research at universities. With this cooperation we won a brilliant scientific partner who will be of great benefit to gifted students at our school. In addition, the continuous exchange with teacher students of the TUM keeps us up to date with the latest development in research.
