The Danish Education System

Denmark divides Social & Health education & professions into 3 different levels: Level 1: Elementary Social and Health Care Level 2: Basic Social and Health Care Level 3: Advanced Social and health Care (Bachelor) The VET social and health educational programs present an alternative route to become bachelor to the more traditional route graduating upper secondary high school. A more practical way for youngsters who learn better and prefer a more practical educational pathway.

The Danish Education System

Philosophy of Danish Education

Ever since Grundtvig and Christian Kold founded the Danish folk high schools in the beginning of 1863, in order to educate and train none educated people to be able to take active part in the new democracy installed in 1848, Danish education and pedagogical methodologies at all levels from kindergarten to higher education has focused and still focus on developing Personal development. Civic competences being able to take active part in a democratic system and life along offering and implementing all the needed basic and professional skills of children, youth and adults. For that reason Danish teachers are trained to perform dialogue and democratic based methodologies enhancing the students to become their own didactical developer.
