The aim of the teaching practice is to acquire the professional competencies necessary in the daily work of the teacher, to get acquainted with the roles in which the teacher enters his / her work, to become aware of his / her own professional needs and gradually to take responsibility for the planning, implementation and evaluation of the teaching. Throughout the course, students get a real idea of what the teacher's everyday work involves.

Practice forms a coherent system of successive subjects. In the follow-up master's programs, these are subjects of teaching practice 1 (1st semester), teaching practice 2 (2nd semester) of teaching practice 3 (3rd semester). In total, these practices are in the range of 280 hours (two-level study), followed by a seminar on teaching practice. Seminar on teaching practice students enroll during the study twice (in the first and second semesters). The aim of the reflection is to provide students with a space for sharing and reflecting experiences from their own pedagogical practice and helping them to deepen reflective and self-reflective skills.

The system of practice is regularly evaluated both through closed and open questions, both by students and accompanying teachers. Reflective seminars are also evaluated.
