We are now offering one last place for our INHOW programme: Intensive Language Skills Coaching for Unemployed Youths. Through this programme job seekers will get the opportunity to do assignments that are comparable to the work future employers would assign them. The participants will be coached during the process, and their assignments will be assessed by coaches with elaborate working experience or by entrepreneurs. The participants will be assessed on their level of Dutch language skills as well as to what extent their work meets the expectations of employers. It is a more or less 5-month programme (10 assignments). The cost of the programme is €40,- per month. The programme is meant for youngsters, but anyone who is interested is welcome to apply.
