Are you looking for specific education or training courses for your staff or do you have an interesting idea you would like to share with us? Human Capital Agenda Zuid-Holland helps companies implement innovation projects that can be partly financed by various employer association (OOM, A+O Metalelektro and OTIB) education funds. We can discuss available funding options with you and put you in touch with relevant parties in our network. Please visit our News page (Dutch) for up-to-date information about various subsidies.
You need your staff to be well trained. But if you want to innovate, you must involve them in the digital transformation process. You can do this by providing education or training courses, setting up an in-house academy or by encouraging participation in a skills programme at one of our field labs, which afford access to state-of-the-art facilities and expertise. SMITZH may be able to help you in one or more of the following areas.
oZone is a user-friendly learning environment developed by tech companies for tech companies. The platform contains ready-to-use basic teaching materials you can use to train new or existing staff. You can also easily develop your own learning modules in oZone. Creating your own learning tracks allows you to tailor to job positions within your company. oZone is free for companies that are part of A+O Metalektro, OOM and OTIB.
Our field labs have developed various short, effective skills programmes that are modular and flexible and lead to accredited certification. You can currently participate in skills labs at RoboHouse, SAM|XL and Duurzaamheidsfabriek. More skills labs will be set up in the near future. If you are interested in setting one up yourself, we would be happy to share our experiences with you.
To establish an effective lifelong learning system, however, skills labs alone are not enough. Accreditation and registration are also required. To facilitate this, SMITZH is currently working on the selection of a registration system for certification, a methodology for accrediting certificates and an accreditation scheme for digital skills courses.
