The Teaching Qualifications of the Royal Conservatoire Antwerp trains artists to become artistic teachers in the various art disciplines for all ages. However, the use of the Flemish Dutch language makes the curriculum less accessible to students from outside its language area Flanders and the Netherlands.
The specific teaching qualification department teacher- training course at the Royal Conservatoire is connected to the bachelor’s and master’s programmes for Dance, Drama, and Music. It is a full-time, one-year course (60 study points) which can also be taken as a part-time course.
At the time of enrolling in the teaching qualification department teacher- training course, students/candidates must demonstrate that they have sufficient knowledge of the Dutch language. The following will suffice for this purpose: evidence of having successfully completed one year of secondary education in Dutch, evidence of having achieved at least 60 study points in a Dutch-speaking course of higher education, evidence of having passed the Interuniversity Dutch-language Test for non-native-Dutch Speakers (the “Interuniversitaire Taaltest Nederlands voor Anderstaligen” (ITNA)), or other evidence from a centre for adult education or recognised language centre. For the teaching qualification department teacher- training course in Drama, level C1 is required. For the teaching qualification department teacher- training course in Dance and Music, level B2 is sufficient.
