TUM school cluster

Between University and Schools there is a chance for mutual support regarding teacher education, scientific findings as well as subject matter. For implementing this idea, the TUM established school clusters additionally to their cooperation network. School clusters consist of neighbouring schools as well as local economic enterprises or associations, which form interactive regional groups. Together they plan and implement projects.

Contact for the TUM is the cooperation school of the school cluster. Today, the TUM works with the following school clusters:

  • School cluster Berchtesgadener Land (since November 2007)
  • School cluster Altötting and Traunstein (since February 2009)
  • School cluster Benediktbeuern (since March 2010)
  • School cluster Bayerischer Wald (since March 2010)
  • Vocational school cluster Straubing (since July 2010)

University schools in Vocational Education

Since many years the TUM cooperates with a large majority of vocational schools in Bavaria. These cooperations take place within the scope of obligated school internships for students during their Bachelor’s and Master’s program Vocational Education. TUM’s university school concept extends and intensifies interlinkage between research / science and school practice within teacher education. University schools are a working space for joint research and development projects for students, teacher trainees and teachers. There is a close coordination of educational contents and concepts of teacher education between the TUM und the Studienseminar for Vocational Teacher Education in Bavaria. Vocational schools profit from these impulses in the realm of teaching and personnel development. Up to date we have three university schools:

  • Berufsschule für Fertigungstechnik, Munich
  • Berufsschule für das Hotel-, Gaststätten- und Brauwesen, Munich
  • Staatliche Berufsschule Pfaffenhofen

All three vocational schools are actively involved in teacher education at the TUM and are seminar schools for the education of teacher trainees.
