Our educational concept: workplace-driven learning

Education begins in practice. That’s the premise of learning at Friesland College, where we try to provide more exciting, contemporary and challenging education; education that invites students’ initiative, curiosity, reflection and practical application of knowledge.

Friesland College wants to promote new professionalism in education and training by using a student-centred approach, coaching students to realize their career ambitions. We aim to offer our students practical learning experience in real life settings, and opportunities to develop professional skills and reflective powers, which will encourage them to take the initiative and become effective learners. That is why we work closely together with companies.
