FAQ merger Koning Willem I College/De Leijgraaf

Since last year, two vocational schools in North East Brabant, the Koning Willem I College and De Leijgraaf, have been researching the possibility of a joint future. Recently we received approval from the Dutch Minister of Education, Culture and Science and the merger will go ahead!

This means that as of 1st January 2022,  we will merge administratively. For the 2022 - 2023 academic year, we will form a single organisation under the name of Koning Willem I College.

The best of both worlds
The reason we are merging is that we want to continue to offer a wide and diverse range of vocational training courses in our region for the future. With this merger we want to bring the best of both worlds together. We will use it to raise the quality and importance of education to a higher level for our students and our partners in the business community.

We encourage our students and staff to participate in international projects or to do an internship abroad.

School for the Future

The educational renaissance of the 21st century will be built on two pillars:
creativity and technology. For some time now education has no longer been just a question of knowledge transfer and one-sided attention to logical and analytical thought processes. Today, education is recognised as a process that involves emotions, interaction between the senses and creative thought processes.

For the development of this 'new education', the Koning Willem I College has set up a separate organization – The School for the Future. Here high-quality technology and purposeful creativity form the basis for trail-blazing learning processes. In addition The School for the Future facilitates and organizes training sessions, workshops and seminars for faculty and staff of the Koning Willem I College and for other professionals in education.
