The NKJO Gorzów Teacher Training College was established in 1991. The three year 'licenciate' (roughly equivalent to a B.A degree) teaching program is designed to equip English and German language students with the necessary skills to teach a foreign language in primary and secondary schools. Groups of about fourteen students stay together in the same group for the three years till graduation and follow a fairly fixed curriculum which includes the acquisition of practical language skills, and the study of related subjects such as: Culture; History; Linguistics; Literature and specialist courses in Pedagogy and Teaching Methodology. All NKJO students are also required to complete a number of hours of teaching at a local school during their third year. Generally speaking after graduation students then go on to study for a two-year 'magister' degree in either Poznan or Szczecin.
