The aim of this article is to systematize the qualification measures for teachers without a teaching license. Based on legal texts and public information of the German states, a typology of the qualifications of teachers who are not basally qualified is developed. With regard to goals and content as well as the conceptual design and the learning opportunities in school practice, it becomes apparent which different concepts of professionalization of alternatively qualified teachers currently prevail in the Federal Republic.
