Language training for youths at Regina Coeli

Regina Coeli has begun offering individual language training courses for young people aged 15 to 18. More and more secondary school students are interested in taking language lessons alongside what they get at school. This could be because they find the language difficult, are looking for an additional challenge or want to prepare for internationally orientated education, for example. Students can opt for online lessons from a native speaker and intensive individual language training at Regina Coeli in Vught during the weekend.

Do you have a training budget? Put it to good use!

As a professional, you know that continuing professional development is a must. Many Dutch collective labour agreements contain agreements on personal training budgets for employees. This means that you can request that your employer fund training or education. Research has shown that at least 40% of the time, individual training budgets go unused and simply expire at the end of the year. If you work for a Dutch company, make sure you reap the benefits of your training budget.
