    Does this mean a qualified secondary school teacher with a degree in his or her teaching subjects?

    It means a qualified teacher who teaches years 11 - 12/13 (Sek II). In Germany, all teachers now have to have a university degree to teach (usually) two subjects, irrespective of the age group they teach.

    It means that the teacher is qualified to teach not only Sekundarstufe I, but also Sekundarstufe II, i.e. a teacher at a Gymnasium

    Thanks Tom Tom. But does it mean that a Sek II teacher is considered more highly qualified than a Sek I teacher? And if so what is the additional qualification?

    They are certainly considered to be more highly qualified. I don't know what the practice is now with the new BA degree courses, but teachers for Gymnasium had to do more terms at university than teachers for primary and (lower) secondary schools. (The latter did a minimum of seven, i.e. three and a half years).
