Profile of the Private University College of Teacher Education, Graz-Seckau
At the KPH Graz, training of teachers and educators in other professions is based on the Christian image of man, the world and God‘s image, according to current scientific standards of teacher education and in a lively discourse between pedagogy, theology and other relevant special sciences. It should be a place of teaching and learning where „greatest challenges go along with greatest respect“ (A.S. Makarenko) and a „a space to live and work where the spirit of freedom and the love of the Gospel are alive“ (Second Vatican Council)
