The total number of course hours is around 1000hrs over the 4 years and the paid work experience is additional and according to each teacher capacity.
The cost of the full 4 years is 10 000Kr paid in the first year, this includes paid work experience in some of Hordalands public institutions, with pay beginning at 360Kr/hr. These work experience teaching positions can begin in the fall directly after the first teacher training course.
