Conditions for accreditation

Student in de bouw

The Dutch Act on Adult and Vocational Education obliges VET-students to pursue the practical component of their education with an accreditation work placement company. We refer to this as work placement.

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

  1. You offer the student an effective and safe workplace that corresponds to the course. The student will carry out the profession for which he is training, with the corresponding work processes and tasks.
  2. You will train the workplace trainer in the requirements of the course and enable him to coach and manage the student on the work-floor. You will make time, space and resources available to the workplace trainer so that he can carry out his task.
  3. You are willing to cooperate with the VET Colleges and SBB and provide the appropriate, necessary information.
  4. You agree to the publication of your business details on, the website that students use to find a work placement or apprenticeship.

For the precise conditions and any sector-based additions, please consult our regulations for accreditation of work placement companies. If you disagree with the work placement advisor's decision on your accreditation as a work placement company, you can lodge an objection.
