    This course aims to give you basic knowledge and tools you need to navigate the Dutch labour market.

    This course will be in ‘easy Dutch’, supported by English, French, German, Spanish or Portuguese…..If your level of Dutch is around A2, you can join.

    Not sure what your level is? Please contact us, and we’ll send you a more in-depth level test or arrange a short intake phone call.

    (This is not a course for the ONA-exam of the ‘Inburgeringsexamen’. If you need help with that, you can contact our teacher Marianne Houben at 0629553115 or mariannehouben@gmail.com)

    Roadmap to the Dutch labour market
    Schedule: 8 classes of 2,5 hours each (20 hours total)
    Price: € 500,–
    Participants: 4-9 persons

    Content:

    • defining your professional ambitions and formulating concrete short-term professional goals;
    • exploring and describing your qualifications (including diplomas and certificates) and those you still need, your work experience, personal qualities and competencies;
    • searching for vacancies and other job opportunities, building and maintaining your network;
    • the job application processes in the Netherlands, including CV, motivation letter and job interview;
    • how to present yourself in an interview, how to know when to push your opinion or comply, how to reach agreement;
    • language and cultural obstacles and how to overcome them; and
    • taking good care of yourself, your energy, work life balance, supporting your self-esteem, overcoming shyness.

    We will tailor the course to the needs and interests of the group. If there is no need for some of the above mentioned topics, we may not cover them. Equally, we can add different topics that the group are interested in.

    Expressing yourself in Dutch will be required, but you do not need to speak or write perfectly! Making mistakes is part of the process.

    We will work together as a group, in pairs and sometimes individually. Apart from sharing information, we’ll be using role play, games, drawing and writing exercises – and sometimes a physical exercise.

    After this course you will have your own personal ‘travel guide’ for the labour market, including tips and information on working and studying in the Netherlands.

    It is recommended that you bring a laptop or tablet in order to find information or write required texts during class.

    Wegwijzer voor de Nederlandse arbeidsmarkt – groepscursus ochtend

    Deze cursus geeft je basiskennis en gereedschap om je weg te vinden op de Nederlandse arbeidsmarkt.

    De cursus wordt gegeven in ‘simpel Nederlands’, ondersteund door Engels, Frans, Duits, Spaans of Portugees…Als je Nederlandse taalniveau ongeveer A2 is, kun je meedoen.

    Ben je niet zeker van je taalniveau? Neem contact met ons op en we sturen je een niveautest of maken een afspraak voor een telefonische korte intake.

    (Dit is geen cursus voor het ONA-examen van het Inburgeringsexamen). Als je hulp met ONA nodig hebt, kun je contact opnemen met onze docent Marianne Houben op 0629553115 of mariannehouben@gmail.com)

    Wegwijzer voor de Nederlandse arbeidsmarkt
    Schema: 8 lessen van 2,5 uur (totaal 20 uur)
    Prijs: € 500,–
    Deelnemers: 4-9 personen

    Inhoud:

    • definieer je professionele dromen en wensen, formuleer concrete professionele doelen voor de korte termijn;
    • onderzoek en beschrijf je kwalificaties (inclusief diploma’s en certificaten) en wat je nog nodig hebt, werkervaring, persoonlijke kwaliteiten en competenties;
    • vacatures en andere arbeidskansen zoeken, je netwerk opbouwen en onderhouden;
    • de sollicitatieprocedure in Nederland, inclusief het maken van een CV en motivatiebrief en het sollicitatiegesprek;
    • hoe jezelf te presenteren tijdens het gesprek, weten wanneer je je mening naar voren brengt of niet, hoe te onderhandelen;
    • taal- en cultuurobstakels en hoe daarmee om te gaan;
    • goed voor jezelf zorgen: je energie, balans werk-privé, je zelfvertrouwen ondersteunen en verlegenheid overwinnen.

    We focussen op de vragen en behoeften van de groepsleden, dus misschien komen sommige van de genoemde onderwerpen niet aan bod als er geen behoefte aan is. En andere onderwerpen kunnen worden toegevoegd.

    We vragen je ook om je in het Nederlands uit te drukken, maar het is absoluut niet nodig om perfect te spreken of schrijven! Fouten maken is deel van het proces.

    We zullen samenwerken in de groep, in tweetallen en soms individueel. Naast het delen van informatie zullen we rollenspel, spelletjes, teken- en schrijfopdrachten en soms een lichamelijke oefening gebruiken.

    Na deze cursus heb je je eigen persoonlijke ‘reisgids’ voor de Nederlandse arbeidsmarkt inclusief tips en informatie over werk en opleiding in Nederland.

    We werken vooral in een groep, maar we vragen je om een laptop of tablet mee te brengen om tijdens de klas informatie te zoeken of een gevraagde tekst te schrijven.

    We hopen je te ontmoeten bij Rubio Dutch!
