DNS The Necessary Teacher Training College


The idea behind DNS is to train Another kind of Teachers, “cultural personalities with collective abilities, specializing in producing knowledge and understanding, and in suiting actions to all the words”. So to be able to enrich and train their students to master both the school and its curriculum as well the life outside the school - Another kind of School. The DNS training is intense in content and varied in the way of learning. You will be active in a variety of contexts: Arranging political, cultural and sports events, acting together with the poor of this world, learning from realities outside the school, fighting climate changes, leading a group of children, creating learning set-ups for youngsters, working in a factory, pulling weed between the carrots, learning from people of all walks of life, meeting other cultures, thinking and acting for how to make things better – because this is what teachers should do. You will meet a curriculum with subjects already known to you, and other subjects and themes we think are relevant and necessary for you and your students to deal with, for education and for life. DNS is a Boarding School. You will live and study together with your team. You will become an active part of the program, of the studies and all the realities during the three years, individually and team-wise. You will train as a political, cultural personality, train as Another kind of Teacher for to represent and practice this “extra” that enables your students, whatever background, to qualify themselves educationally and for life. It is the main part of the concept for our college to give its students, teachers, everyone involved, the best possible fundament for becoming active, politically and culturally, and creating individuals in their life and make this possible through a common organization and effort; because then it matters.

DNS College has no headmaster and is governed by the students. Important decisions are taken in consensus – we never vote.

Practice is our key source of knowledge. Through travels, cultural explorations and constant work with society – we develop our pedagogical tools and fulfill “teachers’ luggage”. We work in teams, side by side with teachers – avoiding traditional hierarchy. DNS is education for activists, pedagogues, teachers, altruists, humanitarians and those who want to change the future of the world by any means. ... [-]
