Obtaining approval for practical education for your child
Is your child likely unable to attain a voorbereidend middelbaar beroepsonderwijs – VMBO (preparatory vocational secondary education) diploma? If so, they may receive praktijkonderwijs (practical education). Praktijkonderwijs is a form of secondary education. It mainly teaches your child practical skills. Such as cooking or filling in forms. To enrol in praktijkonderwijs, your child needs a toelaatbaarheidsverklaring (declaration of admissibility). This proves that your child is entitled to praktijkonderwijs.

Requesting a toelaatbaarheidsverklaring for praktijkonderwijs
Is praktijkonderwijs the best place for your child? If so, you may register your child at a school for practical education. This school will then request a toelaatbaarheidsverklaring from the partnership group. A partnership group is a collaboration between ordinary schools and special education schools. Before the school requests the toelaatbaarheidsverklaring, it must consult with you and your child.
