Developed in cooperation

'Trainees in onderwijs' originated from the wish of partners in and around education to train teachers who connect worlds inside and outside the school.
The programme was developed in collaboration with the VO-raad, Interuniversitaire lerarenopleidingen (ICL), including ICLON of Leiden University, Vereniging van Universiteiten (VSNU) and the Ministerie van Onderwijs, Cultuur en Wetenschap (OCW).
