DNS The Necessary Teacher Training College

Introduction

Why DNS?

Our aim is to train progressive teachers who can respond to the challenges of our time. We combine theoretical knowledge with experiences and emphasise a learning by doing approach. Students who come here, have a strong wish to develop themselves as individuals, teachers and conscious citizens of the world.

The Lifestyle

At our campus we live, work, eat, and study collectively. The students and teachers run the college together - we make decisions by consensus democracy. We have a rich cultural life at the campus with over 20 different nationalities sharing and creating traditions. Our community is also extraordinary due to shared economy and an environment free from drugs and alcohol. All of the mentioned above create an equal, productive and creative atmosphere, where everybody can contribute and be heard.

Our programme:


1st year: The World is our Classroom


Africa travel

Together with your team you prepare and set off for a 4-month bus travel to Western Africa . During the travel you meet and live with the locals while you explore the social, cultural and political aspects of the countries. The bus becomes your home and classroom. You discover the world with all your senses to understand the global reality better.

Spread your message

Once back in Europe you share the knowledge you gained. You visit schools and organisations to give lessons and workshops about what you have learned. You raise awareness about important issues on our planet.

2nd year: Think global, Act local

European reality period

You, together with your team, move into a city in Europe for 6 months, to explore the reality of ordinary people. You live together and get jobs. You organise events to share experiences and enrich the lives of your workmates and neighbours. You learn about how Western society works and what it takes to change it.

Do what you think is most appropriate period

You identify what is the most relevant for you to develop as an Individual, a Teacher and a Global citizen. You make a plan for your development and go out. You can decide to teach in a rural village in Nepal, help refugees in Turkey or learn a skill you have always dreamt about. The choice is yours.

3rd year - Learn by Teaching

You focus on experiencing and understanding the reality of children, youth and teachers at schools. You practice and develop your teaching skills through an internship. You find out what kind of teacher you want to be and how will you prepare your students for the 21st century.

In order to learn, we must explore
We learn more when we explore the world together
We develop the most when we teach others
