Learning Hub Friesland

Internationalisation is a crucial response to the demands to develop graduates who possess adequate skills, knowledge and attributes to engage and perform in a globalised and intercultural world.

By learning international competences, students are better qualified for an increasingly global labour market. This does not only benefit students who want to go abroad. In their own country too, students will have to deal with contexts in which international knowledge and skills are needed.

Learning Hub Friesland supports all activities that are aimed at bringing together schools, students and teachers with different views, cultures and educational systems in order to better understand and appreciate one another and enrich one’s own culture.

Learning Hub Friesland is set up to realise the visions, plans and international ambitions of those active in education & training: teachers, trainers and students.

Set up as a foundation, LHF actively harvests the challenges found in education and training in the Friesland region and beyond. We are keen to form the education & training gateway to and from our region: exporting good initiatives developed in our region to other European regions and importing strong examples from elsewhere.

We never operate on our own. From our role as a true hub we like to work together with like-minded people, keen to cooperate and to help us achieve our goals: to make an active contribution to education and training innovation and together address regional challenges and ambitions with an worldly mindset.

How do we do that? Three main ways: course development & delivery, professionalisation, and of course by connecting people via our hub network.

Our foundation is an experienced organisation for:

  • Developing project proposals for EU funding for schools, or linking schools to other project initiators.
  • Managing and coordinating EU projects and taking care of the administrative and reporting duties for the school.
  • Knowledge and competence development of teaching staff on topics as internationalisation, funding applications and EU project management through workshops, 1-on-1 coaching and job shadowing.
  • Development of innovative teaching and training materials: practical courses and interactive assignments to be used directly in the classroom and beyond. For example VET minors.
