Education

Intermediate vocational education

If you have a lower intermediate vocational education diploma then you can then go to secondary technical and vocational training. This is called intermediate vocational education. There are four different levels of intermediate vocational education:

  • Level 1: assistant training (for instance to become a shop assistant)
  • Level 2: basic vocational training (for instance to become a hairdresser)
  • Level 3: vocational training (for instance to become a car mechanic)
  • Level 4: middle management training (for instance to become a shop manager)
Enrolment

This is how

Look at the website of your new school, it usually indicates how to enrol. When you enrol, the school will need the following information:
  • Your date of birth
  • Whether you are a boy or a girl
  • The country and town you were born in
  • Your name
  • Your address
  • Your nationality (which country you are a citizen of)
  • Telephone number
  • The date on which you arrived in the Netherlands
  • Your individual education number: this is the number the school gives each pupil
Your school passes on this information to the DUO. The school is not allowed to pass on your information to other people. So also not to the Aliens police.
Requirements

This is what you must meet

There are four levels of intermediate vocational education. The admission requirements differ per level. Admission requirements are requirements you need to meet. For some studies you need a secondary school diploma. For other levels this isn’t necessary.
  • intermediate vocational education-level 1 For this you don’t need a secondary school diploma
  • intermediate vocational education-level 2 For some studies on intermediate vocational education-level 2 you don’t need a secondary school diploma. Sometimes you need a lower intermediate vocational education diploma.
  • intermediate vocational education-level 3 and 4 For this level you need at least a lower intermediate vocational education diploma.
This is mentioned in article 8.1.1 and article 8.1.1a of the Act on Education and Technical and Vocational Training.
Student grants

Only with residence permit

Alleen met verblijfsvergunning Are you older than 18 and are you studying fulltime? You can then borrow money from the government to study. You will also get a card to travel by public transport free of charge (an “ov-kaart”). Child refugees don’t get a loan or travel card. This is because you require a residence permit for student grants.
Work placement

Also without residence permit

For many intermediate vocational education courses you are obliged to go on work placement. Work placement means that you work in a company for some time. Diploma Ook zonder verblijfsvergunning You have the right to a diploma if you have passed all exams. It doesn’t matter if you don’t have a residence permit. You are allowed to work with this diploma. You may also continue your studies. For instance, a higher professional education. If your school doesn’t give you a diploma You have the right to a diploma, even if you don’t (yet) have a residence permit. If your school doesn’t give you a diploma, then you can take the following steps:
  • Send a letter to your school. In the letter, mention that you have the right to a diploma by law (article 7.4.6 of the Act on Education and Technical and Vocational Training). This also applies to children without a residence permit.
  • Write in your letter that you would like an answer on paper with the reason why you aren’t getting a diploma. This is important because you will need this letter if you go to a lawyer.
  • Do you have a letter of your school? Then take it to the lawyer.
  • The lawyer will ask the judge to make sure your school gives you a diploma after all.
This is laid down in article 7.4.6 of the Act on Education and Technical and Vocational Training.
