International Talent Programme - Autumn 2021
We are excited to announce that we will hold our next International Talent Programme in Autumn 2021! We look forward to enabling passionate and caring childcare professionals to obtain a qualification that allows them to work in childcare in the Netherlands.
Zein held the first ITP in 2017, offering a unique opportunity to Dutch and international childcare professionals to take the next step in their careers. The ITP offers those who hold childhood education qualifications and/or experience but are not officially qualified to work with children in the Netherlands, a recognized, professional solution for meeting the Dutch legislative requirements.
Dafni, an ITP graduate from the Spring Class of 2020, explains: "Zein's ITP gave me the unique opportunity to build a strong foundation and enhance my knowledge about childcare so that I could start my dream career in international childcare."
As part of the ITP, successful candidates will follow an in-house training scheme and receive on-the-job training under the guidance of experienced Zein professionals whilst working within Day Care or Out of School Care groups at Zein. Trainees also participate in Zein’s Academy Training sessions which cover all aspects of international child care and the Zein approach to working with internationally-minded families.
This year we are looking for more Dutch-speaking candidates as we are opening more bilingual groups in the Hague and Amsterdam. Dutch proficiency will be an advantage in your application to the ITP.
Each time we host an ITP session, we are proud to see our candidates’ dedication and commitment to childcare which enables them to grow and develop personally and professionally. For more information about the Zein International Talent Programme and the application process, click here.
