Advisory Body LLBM

Purpose and Tasks

The Advisory Body LLBM supports the University's Executive Board in all matters concerning teacher education at university level.

It helps to coordinate teacher education throughout the University – among the Office of the Vice President Education and Student Affairs, which has the lead with respect to topics; the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, which is responsible for the course of study; all faculties participating in teacher education; as well as the Institute of Education, which manages the course of study.

To achive its purpose, the Advisory Body LLBM performs the following tasks for the attention of the University's Executive Board:

  • It advises the University's Executive Board on all important issues of university teacher education.
  • It comments on all strategic and structure-building matters of teacher education at the university (in particular chair matters, planning matters of strategic importance, framework ordinances) for the attention of the University's Executive Board in the form of co-reports.
  • It develops proposals for solutions for the attention of the University's Executive Board in all cases in which the Conference of Secondary School Subjects of the UZH is unable to reach agreement.
  • The tasks primarily relate to the training and continuing education of teachers for upper secondary schools. If there is a need for coordination, the Advisory Body LLBM can also deal with other cross-faculty issues in teacher education.
