Teacher education at the University of Helsinki always includes teaching practice. Teaching practice is the responsibility of the University's Faculty of Educational Sciences, and it is organised by its two affiliated teacher training schools, the Helsinki Normal Lyceum and the Viikki Teacher Training School, as well as an extensive network of kindergartens, schools and other institutions in the field. The teaching practice included in the Swedish-speaking teacher education programmes is completed in our partner schools. The academic mission of the teacher training schools is to organise the teaching practice included in the University's teacher education in a teacher training school, to supervise this teaching practice and to develop it further.
