Language Centre retains Blik op Werk quality standard for Dutch courses during civic integration

15 December 2015
Blik op Werk quality standard

The University of Groningen Language Centre has retained its Blik op Werk quality standard for Dutch language courses as part of civic integration until June 2016. To continue using the quality standard, the Language Centre had to pass an audit assessing the pass rate for participants in Staatsexamens, the working methods, the quality of staff and customer satisfaction.

The Language Centre has been a Blik op Werk -certified provider of integration courses and dual programmes since 2014. Blik op Werk is an independent quality assurance and knowledge institute, which monitors the quality of service provision in the area of long-term employability and civic integration. The Blik op Werk quality standard guarantees the basic quality and reliability of the service providers by subjecting them to an annual assessment.

Civic integration via Dutch courses at the Language Centre

The Dutch courses taught at the Language Centre prepare participants for the Staatsexamen NT2 (State Examination in Dutch as a Second Language). Participants on civic integration courses with a loan from the Education Executive Agency (DUO) are obliged to take a Dutch course at an institute with the Blik op Werk quality standard. Since 2014, more than 300 participants have taken a Dutch course at the Language Centre as part of their civic integration courses.
