Cooperation schools of the University of Vienna

Based on the cooperation school model introduced by the Department of Education, by 2014 the University of Vienna had established a network of 58 certified cooperating schools in Vienna and its surrounding area.

To further extend this first level of cooperation between universities and schools, the concept of cooperation schools has been expanded since summer semester 2015. The cooperation is specified in a cooperation agreement and cooperation schools obtain the title "Cooperation School of the University of Vienna" by means of a certificate for up to three school years with the possibility of renewal.

A cooperation school agrees to carry out a joint practical research project together with the Department of Education or a subject didactics centre of the University of Vienna, which involves teachers, students and academics. Cooperation schools are involved in the education of future teachers during their teaching practice (bachelor’s programme) and their practical work at school (master’s programme). Teachers working at a cooperation school receive preferential treatment when the places for the Certificate Course / Postgraduate Course "Mentoring Training in the pedagogical practical studies" and "Mentoring: Professional Supervision of Entry into the Teaching Profession“ are allocated.

This cooperation in research and teaching stimulates synergetic effects. The mutual influence of theory and practice contributes to active quality development and quality assurance in both institutions.
