Teach as a teacher in Sweden?

I have a question about what do I have to do, to be able to teach as a teacher in Sweden?
Hope you can help me answer the question?

Have a nice day//



  • Hello John,
    Thank you for your question.

    In Sweden teachers require teacher certification (lärarlegitimation). This certification shows in which types of school, what years and what subjects you are qualified to teach. The aim of the certification system is to raise standards in Swedish schools, improve the status of the profession and clarify the qualifications of teachers and preschool teachers.

    Since 1 July 2015, only certified teachers or preschool teachers may take professional pedagogical responsibility for teaching and setting grades, no matter when they were employed.

    You can top up your certification with additional credits for any experience you have from the year 2000 up until 1 July 2015. If you wish to apply for teacher certification, have any queries, you should contact the National Agency for education Skolverket directly.

    Hope that answered your question.

    Have a nice day! 😀
