Every year the ‘keuzegids mbo’ establish which vocational (= mbo in Dutch) programs may call themselves Top Education. This title is earned through positive reviews by students, if enough students pass their exams succesfully, and if employers and the education inspectorate are happy about the program. All these aspects lead to a total score. Does a program have at least 75 points? Then it’s a Top education!
“We are very proud of this result”, says team leader Johan van Stratum. “The fact that our music programs have earned this title for the sixth time in succession and have been chosen ‘best vocational training of the Netherlands’ goes to show that not only do we offer innovative education programs, but also that our students have a lot of appreciation for what we do. Also the small scale of our school adds to this achievement. We have 125 students and everyone, students and teachers, knows each other by name.”
Next school year (2022-2023) will see the start of a new study, Music Production Lab. There is a great demand for a program like this and we are planning to make this a Top education as well.
