Do you have a passion for working with children, but find you’re not ‘qualified’ to work in childcare in the Netherlands? Then we may have a unique opportunity available for you!
Many professionals educated or experienced in education, child development or care apply to us for positions only to find out that their particular international or Dutch qualification – or former work experience – is not formally recognised by the Dutch Childcare Authorities. Through the International Talent Programme, Zein offers both international and Dutch candidates who are passionate about working with children but not officially qualified to work in childcare in the Netherlands a recognized, professional solution for obtaining the relevant qualifications to meet the Dutch legislative requirements.
Successful candidates will follow a personalised in-house training scheme alongside an adapted version of the Dutch ‘EVC’ (ervaringscertificaat/experience-based certification) process. During training, candidates receive a personal coach, on-the-job training by experienced Zein professionals as well as access to a range of workshops and lectures. Upon completion of the programme and receipt of the qualification, we aim to extend an employment offer for a teaching position, allowing you to continue building your career in Zein as a fully-qualified international childcare teacher.
