STRATEGY

Training professionals

To realise its vision, Van Hall Larenstein makes accurate choices when it comes to external profiling and we define a clear selection for regional, national, and international future students and professionals. At the end of this planning period we wish to realise a number of strategic main objectives. To achieve this we operate in the following fields:

  • Education: all our study programmes will have three AISHE stars at the end of the plan period. Among other things, this means that our sustainable development vision will be visible in our teaching and that expertise in sustainable development will be present right across the study programme;
  • Operational management: by structuring our operational management in a sustainable manner, we will qualify for the Corporate Social Responsibility quality mark in combination with our study programmes. The aim is to achieve ‘entry’ level in 2014 and 'certified' in 2017;
  • Regional development: by 2017 at the latest, we will acquire the BREEAM sustainable regional development certificate for our locations in Velp and Leeuwarden, where our own buildings are located;
  • By the end of the plan period, we will opt for the NVAO’s (Accreditation Organisation of the Netherlands and Flanders) special 'sustainable education' quality mark for the individual study programmes and for VHL as a whole.

Van Hall Larenstein wants to be a personal institute, where students are satisfied with their education. The strategic objectives for our education are:

  • to improve the quality of the study programmes, as shown by the rankings. We want:
  • VHL as an institution to be in the Top 5 in the Dutch Guide to Higher Vocational Education (Keuzegids HBO);
  • VHL to achieve an average institutional score of 3.8 in the National Student Survey (NSE);
  • at least 4500 students by the end of the plan period.
