Netherlands - Work based learning in the health and welfare sector

Hoornbeeck College [add hotlink to  ] provides VET training and education for those wishing to enter a practical profession. This requires the acquisition of the right knowledge, skills and attitude based on training which includes theory and practice with strong connections between both parts of the training programme. Work-based learning, including assessment, gives students an opportunity to demonstrate what they can do and what they have learnt. For learners to be successful the quality of provision has to be high and this includes the quality of the assessment process. For Hoornbeeck College an important basis for securing and improving their quality is the plan-do-check-act cycle. Alongside the cyclical nature of quality improvement, it is important that those undertaking the learners’ assessments are conscious of the need for quality and that they work with a culture of quality. To create this environment Hoornbeeck College encourages a high level of professionalism and the establishment of appropriate procedures.
