Dutch distance learning secondary education: online school

Moving across borders with teenagers? Opt for top-notch Dutch distance learning for secondary education: an online program tailored to your child’s needs.

Dutch distance learning secondary education: completing the first two years online

If your family moves abroad with teenagers, it won’t take long for you to Google the term ‘Dutch distance learning secondary education.’ Because even though you’ll spend quite a while living and working across borders, you will likely return to the Netherlands at some point. In that case, it’s important that your children can re-enter the Dutch educational system in the grade that pertains to their age and learning level. They also need to be well prepared for their final exams, so they can graduate and obtain a high school diploma in the Netherlands. But where to find top-notch distance learning? Dutch secondary education that meets preset standards isn’t easy to find abroad. That is why you require an online learning program which fully focuses on your child’s needs.

Dutch secondary school: anytime, anywhere

Your child has been brought up speaking Dutch. But when children move abroad at a young age, it’s paramount that they keep practicing their language skills. If native speakers don’t continue to learn a language actively, their knowledge will deteriorate – or, worse, they’ll lag behind in terms of language development. To ensure a smooth return to a Dutch secondary school or further education in the Netherlands, it’s important to work on this from the get-go in a way that suits your child.

The child’s needs come first: Edufax and distance learning

In the Netherlands, secondary school consists of several stages. After completing primary school, many children complete one year of secondary school before determining their level: preparatory secondary vocational education (vmbo), senior general secondary education (havo), or pre-university education (vwo). Is there an online program that’s in line with this system?

Absolutely. It’s called ‘NTC-online.’ This flexible learning program aims to support your child in developing their full academic potential. At Edufax, we want to help children thrive, especially when they’re moving across borders. Because we believe geographical borders shouldn’t impede a child’s development. After all, today’s children are tomorrow’s world citizens. We consider it our task to prepare them for building a career and a life in our ever-globalizing society.

Based on this thought, we create tailor-made educational solutions, such as NTC-online, which is suitable for children seeking primary and secondary distance education in Dutch (read more about primary school distance learning or, more generally, distance learning in the Netherlands). After successfully completing the 6th grade (group 8), they move on to the first two years of secondary school. This allows us more time to determine the level and learning path that pertain to a child. On top of that, the child is not limited to learning materials at a single level, which makes it easier to re-enter the Dutch educational system.

After the first two years of secondary school, we will discuss the most suitable examination path. Your child can go through the curricula at an accelerated or slackened pace to prepare for their high school diploma in the Netherlands.
