Crime Prevention becomes part of the curriculum in nine universities
Nine universities, the Hungarian Rectors’ Conference and the National Crime Prevention Council of Hungary set up a cooperation agreement that ensures the presence of the crime preventive content within the teacher education.
Our course ’Crime prevention at school’ aims to teach candidates how to hold interactive crime prevention classes and activities, to gain knowledge about where to seek help if they notice serious anomalies in the class room. The module contains both practical and theoretical classes in order to prepare future teachers to be able to hold lessons on victimization and the risks of becoming a perpetrator.
Participants will gain insight into the methodology of experiential education, constructivist pedagogy and competence development. Practical classes give the opportunity to develop problem solving and presentation skills and strengthen the ability of social support and the tolerance of diversity.
The participating universities are: the University of Pécs, University of Szeged, Gál Ferenc College, John von Neumann University, Eötvös Loránd University, Eszterházy Károly University, Károli Gáspár University of the Reformed Church in Hungary, University of Nyíregyháza and the Széchenyi István University.
