Het Onderwijsloket: the information platform for people who want to work in education in the Netherlands
Het Onderwijsloket is a national education desk that was launched in early 2020 at the initiative of the Association of Universities of Applied Sciences (VH) and the Universities of the Netherlands (UNL). We aspire to inform anyone who is considering a career within the Dutch education system about the possibilities and required steps. Whether you already have teaching experience abroad or are entirely new to the education sector, we are here to help you find the best way. The advisors of het Onderwijsloket can answer questions about where your teaching qualification can be assessed and certified, which routes are available to you if you want to obtain a teaching qualification and what practical matters you should take into account.
