Submit your application for the preparatory service (teacher training traineeship)


As a teacher, you educate and teach in your own pedagogical freedom and responsibility. You give instruction in the subjects, school levels and types of school for which you acquire the teaching qualification. In order to be as well prepared for this task, you must meet certain requirements.

First, you will complete a teacher training course. You can do this in Halle (Saale) or Magdeburg. You have the choice between studying for the teaching profession at

  • Primary schools
  • Special Schools
  • Secondary schools
  • Secondary schools
  • Vocational schools.

At the Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg, the teacher training concludes with the 1st state examination. A few years ago, the Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg converted its teacher training to a Bachelor-Master system. The Master of Education corresponds to the 1st state examination.

After successfully completing your studies, you will acquire practical skills and abilities as a teacher in the subsequent preparatory service. The preparatory service generally lasts 16 months. The training takes place at state seminars for teaching positions in Halle and Magdeburg and at approved training schools. The preparatory service concludes with the career examination for a teaching profession.

  • If you are admitted to the preparatory service, you will receive a written notification by e-mail with an offer of employment, which is associated with the request to comment within a set deadline whether you want to accept the offer.
  • Experience has shown that not all recruitment offers are accepted, so that places are often allocated in the follow-up procedure until the last day of recruitment.

At the State Seminar for Teacher Training Halle (Saale), the teaching professions at primary, special and secondary schools as well as grammar schools are trained.
