Module contents
This module introduces Bachelor’s students of Teaching Economics to possible areas of employment outside the school system. In response to a world of education that is forever changing and to the demands of life-long learning, the module offers perspectives and insights to students seeking careers inside or outside the school system. It shows how the versatile Teaching Economics programme prepares students both for jobs in familiar domains of adult education and for careers outside the education sector. The module clearly lays out the qualifications required for teaching economics outside the school system, qualifications that a conventional teacher training programme may not provide. However, it also serves students seeking to teach in schools. In the module, we look at interactions between schools and other domains of learning, and ask ourselves what this means for the methodology of teaching economics. Furthermore, students gain direct access to domains of learning outside formal institutes of education by meeting practitioners from sectors including:
 Consumer counselling and consumer protection
 Quality assurance and the management of knowledge and learning in institutions outside the school system
 In-company training of all kinds (initial and advanced training, retraining, etc.), aiming to organise and provide knowledge at the vocational, the company or the macro-economic level
 Publishing houses, editorial boards of newspapers, radio and TV stations, as well as public relations agencies that deal with economic and business issues
 Information and public communication departments in companies and other institutions
 Foundations and other non-profit organisations
 Institutions of adult education
