The Design and Art Teaching program for post-primary education in collaboration with Hebrew University’s School of Education.
Art and design education is a fundamental and essential layer in an individual’s personal and moral development within society. In recent years, Bezalel has launched courses in education that combine social-communal work. The teaching certificate program launched in 2013 as a unique collaboration between the School of Education at the Hebrew University and Bezalel.
The program runs for two years, and is designed for outstanding students (from Bezalel and the Hebrew university), who are in their advanced years of study and have a social and educational orientation.
The studies are held at Bezalel and the Hebrew University. First-year practical training is held as part of “Bezalel Apprentices” – an in-depth program in which students teach youth at Bezalel, earning a grant in return.
Some of the School of Education studies will be counted towards an academic degree in the History and Theory Department. Moreover, some of the credit points of a Bezalel degree will be counted towards a teaching certificate. Most of the studies will be held in a long school day format (Sunday) for two years, and a few Fridays throughout the year.
Registration deadline for the 2021/2022 academic year is May 22, 202
*Bezalel tuition for program participants is considerably subsidized; further details will be given out upon request.
For advice on any question, contract the program staff: Shelly Hershko and Assaf Elkalai.
According to the Ministry of Education decision, all teaching certificate graduates who study at universities and education colleges must take on an internship. The training is the first working year as a teacher, and is meant to reinforce the professional viewpoint of those engaged in it. Fulfilling the internship requirement enables to obtain a teaching license, as long as it is utilized within five years of completing the teaching certificate studies.
The program accepts students who have completed their B.A. or two years of study towards a B.A. with a minimum grade point average of 85.
All students will be required to pass an admissions committee made up of Hebrew University and Bezalel representatives.
*Registration for second year students and higher is conditioned by a minimum grade point average of 85.
