Welcome to the ZPPS (Centre for Practical Pedagogical Studies)

On the pages below you will find general information on practical school training (PPS = pedagogical practical studies), as well as current information on dates, deadlines and registration modalities for internships.

The Centre for Practical Pedagogical Studies is a cooperative institution of the Stefan Zweig University of Education, the Paris Lodron University of Salzburg, the Mozarteum University and the Edith Stein Ecclesiastical University of Education. In addition to our main field of activity, the organisation and coordination of internships, we act as an interface between our institutions, students, schools, accompanying courses and the Directorate of Education. We utilise knowledge from research, theory and practice to develop the quality of the PPS.

We are happy to advise and inform you about practical school matters:
