Our School

Mission and Vision

Tec Walcheren wants to be a safe place for all immigrant 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

The team and the classes

Tec Walcheren currently has 4 year groups, all of which are classified by age. Tec 1 is ar kindergarten level for year groups 1 and 2. Tec 2 is intended for students in year groups 3 and 4 in mainstream education, Tec 3 for children who would normally be in either years 5 and 6 and Tec 4 is for the children in upper years.

The number of students per class changes regularly, however each has a maximum of around 15 students alongside a is a teacher and teaching assistant. In addition to this, the school also employs a location manager, an internal supervisor, a professional management member and a game supervisor.
