CINOP (Centre for Innovation of Education and Training)
(CINOP)

UNEVOC Centre (National Body) since 1994

CINOP is an independent, (inter)national centre of expertise and research, specialised in lifelong learning, technical and vocational education & training (TVET) and adult education. Our clients and partners are educational institutions, schools, umbrella organisations, industry associations, social partners, training & development funds, companies, EU-, national- and local- authorities, centres of expertise, international bodies and NGO’s.

International activities:

In the EU-context CINOP is designated by the Dutch government and the European Commission as National Agency Erasmus+, National Coordination Point ECVET, EQAVET, NLQF, Euroguidance, and as ReferNet national partner in cooperation with CEDEFOP. As such CINOP strongly interacts within the EU wide networks of each of these themes in TVET and adult education.

CINOP Global is active in various countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Middle East. We support institutions and stakeholders of the skills ecosystem in promoting opportunities for lifelong and enabling people to develop their practical and technical skills and help strengthening TVET worldwide.

Mission

Our mission is to contribute to the concept of lifelong learning and work with a joint goal in mind: enabling people to use their talents and develop education. CINOP is therefore developing itself as a social enterprise; a private company that does not aim at profit maximisation.


Objectives

• Provide concrete services (research, advise, project management and instruments) aimed directly at improvement of TVET authorities, providers and training programmes;

• Create interactive cooperation and partnerships with TVET stakeholders whom CINOP serves with its educational and training expertise;

• Bridge between the world of employment and that of vocational education and training, both national and international.



Regular tasks

• Professional development of TVET managers, teachers, and instructors

• Organisation of knowledge sharing and peer learning platforms and events for TVET stakeholders in specific thematic areas (21st century skills, quality assurance, NQF, career guidance, social partnership, green skills, teacher training, etc.)

• Education and labour market research and monitoring

• Development of methodologies, tools and instruments for the TVET sector (e.g. for assessment and examination purposes)

• Support in promoting accessibility of disabled students

• Management of national and international projects aiming at strengthening TVET systems, institutions and stakeholders

• Management of the National Coordination Point NLQF, the National Qualification Framework for the Netherlands

• Drafting of reviews of the Dutch TVET system

• Management of national Centre of Expertise on Disability and Study
