Conditions for accreditation

Student in de bouw

The Dutch Act on Adult and Vocational Education requires VET-students to carry out part of their education or training at accredited work placement companies.

As an accredited work placement company, you will uphold the following conditions:

  1. You offer students a safe workplace that corresponds with their education or training. The student will carry out the profession for which he is training with the corresponding tasks and requirements.
  2. You assign a workplace trainer, who has good insight in the profession and is able to coach and manage students on the work-floor. You will make time and resources available for the workplace trainer to carry out these tasks.
  3. You are willing to cooperate with VET schools and SBB, and you will provide the appropriate and necessary information.
  4. You agree to the publication of your business details on the website that students use to find a practice placement opening or apprenticeship.

Please consult the rules on accreditation of work placement companies for more information and any sector-based additions. If you disagree with the work placement advisor's decision on your accreditation as a work placement company, you have the right to lodge an objection.
