In the lower grades Early Foreign Language Education focuses on speaking and comprehension/listening skills. In the upper grades reading and writing skills are added. The schools shown in the dashboard above are all certified with a ‘vvto quality certificate’ by one of these expert organisations (EarlyBird, TalenT or Cedin).

Biligual Primary Education (tpo)

Tweetalig primair onderwijs (tpo) was a pilot programme – which ran till summer 2023 – in which a number of schools offer English language education from the first year of primary school for 30% to 50% of the class time. The schools implement immersion education, where the focus lies on understanding and communication. In addition, the schools have to meet three main requirements:

  • The Dutch curriculum is leading, the offer covers the core objectives
  • English lessons and activities cover 30% to 50% of the class time
  • Internationalisation activities are a vital part of the education

Network Languages and Global Citizenship

Primary schools which participate in the Network Languages and Global Citizenship focus on developing and exchanging knowledge and practical lessons on early foreign language education, global citizenship education, and other topics, like multilingualism, inclusion and diversity.
