Magdeburg (dpa/sa) - The Ministry of Education and the Federal Employment Agency want to win teachers for Saxony-Anhalt with a virtual speed dating. The appointment should take place on January 12, said the house of Education Minister Eva Feußner (CDU) on Thursday.
"In the new year we are also looking intensively for people who want to enrich their own life and that of the students in Saxony-Anhalt - by changing to the teaching profession," said Feußner. Lateral entrants are a great benefit for the schools in the country. You can "offer tailor-made job offers in all regions of Saxony-Anhalt". At the event, those interested should find out what access options there are to the teaching profession and what criteria are used to select lateral entrants.
Like other federal states, Saxony-Anhalt has a serious shortage of teachers. According to the Ministry of Education, the so-called teaching coverage was recently 92 percent and thus lower than ever before. The aim of the black-red-yellow coalition is 103 percent teaching coverage, for example to be able to cover failures.
