Teachers teach and educate children, young people and young adults of various age groups. In their teaching, they impart to pupils the facts and specialist knowledge contained within the respective curricula, teach subject related skills and also provide guidance on thinking and working in an autonomous manner. Education includes assisting and supporting pupils in subject related and personal matters as well as teaching socially accepted types of behaviour and value systems.
The task of teachers is to prepare and deliver lessons at various types of school.
Types of school may have different names or be divided up differently depending on the federal state.
