Please contact the State Institute for School Quality and Teacher Education Saxony-Anhalt (LISA), State Examination Office for Teacher Training.

You submit an application for recognition of your foreign teacher training qualification to the competent authority. This checks whether your foreign qualification corresponds to the German qualification for a teaching profession established in the state of Saxony-Anhalt.

This review is based on defined formal criteria, such as the content and duration of the training. Your relevant professional experience will be taken into account as well as other relevant qualifications.

After the examination, the competent authority will inform you whether

  • recognition is granted,
  • there are deficiencies in the qualification and therefore compensatory measures are necessary before recognition, or
  • recognition cannot take place.
