Our School

Mission and Vision

Tec Walcheren wants to be a safe place for all refugee children in Walcheren – a place where they can study and further their language development, in order to continue into mainstream education.

We want to achieve this by:

  • having a personal relationship with our students built on trust
  • thematic language teaching supported by the NT2 level and methods
  • tailoring education at an individual level
  • a balanced but lively working environment.
  • having a good relationship with parents and guardians alike
  • forward thinking and focussing on integration in Dutch society
  • an easy transfer into regular education

quality manual

You can find out about how we work at TEC in our quality manual.

This manual does not contain solid rules, moreover it contains agreements that we have made with each other during the school year that strengthen the quality of our education. The topics in the quality manual are regularly evaluated in meetings and if necessary, the agreements in the quality manual are adjusted or included in the annual plan.
