Professional Training

Integration in the Netherlands requires sufficient command of the Dutch language. Integrated education programmes, that combine professional skills and language training, can be very useful for former asylum seekers that have little or no command of the Dutch language.

Between 2001 and 2004 HIT Foundation developed three vocational training courses for a variety of professions that combine professional skills and language training. The integrated education programmes were developed with financing from the European Social Fund (ESF) Equal I.
