The region of Rivierenland, which is characterized as an SME region, needs employees who change with new developments, are multi-employable and have 21st century skills. This means that employees must adopt a learning attitude and make themselves sustainably employable. This requires new skills from people and it is necessary to learn to take the lead over their own career. Despite the increase in the number of jobs and vacancies, however, there are groups of jobseekers who find it difficult to find work.
Broad training is the start for the search for a new structure in education, in which self-reliance and self-development are core values. The cooperation partners want to give this working method an impulse for further development towards a “lifelong” cooperation between education and business. The concept of broad training has been further developed in the past few years and small-scale pilots have been run in education with a delineated group of partners that originated from care and welfare and host / hostess. The results from these pilots are promising and partly answer the outlined problems in the region. In order to be able to properly implement this concept and to scale it up further towards the other study programs and the associated business community, this concept must become part of an ongoing social development line that already starts at pre-vocational secondary education and that offers civil value to all stakeholders in the region. Employees should experience that their learning process is not a closed chapter when they have finished their training. An MBO start qualification should actually be a lifelong development qualification, in which you always combine learning and working.
Finally, the partners want to focus on strengthening the currently fragmented network. To this end, the partners want to evaluate the existing network and carry out a six-monthly network monitor during regionally organized meetings. The purpose of these meetings is to strengthen the network and to improve cooperation between regional initiatives.
