Remote Secondary Education

The Wereldschool offers secondary education at three level: VMBO ‘theoretische leerweg’ (preparatory middle-level vocational education), HAVO (higher general continued education) and VWO (pre-university secondary education). We are accredited, and satisfy all national educational goals and reference levels.

  • When you go abroad, and no good local school is available, you can make use of the complete secondary education package of the Wereldschool. Your child will take up the same subjects as their peers in the Netherlands, from home. This will prevent any re-integration problems when returning to standard Dutch education.
  • The complete secondary education package of the Wereldschool is much cheaper than an international school abroad.
  • Our complete packages offer a solution if you decide to go travel with your children.
  • Of course, loose subjects are also available as an addition to local education. This might be a solution if the level of local education is low, your child requires more of an education challenge than is available locally, or when you would like to prepare your child for their return to the Netherlands.
  • All subjects run synchronically to education in the Netherlands, and lead up to final national examination. In the upper levels of secondary education, your child will choose a sector (if they are in VMBO), or an educational profile (if they are in HAVO or VWO).

Methodology

At the secondary education level with the Wereldschool, the student studies independently using the help of the manual and study books. Additionally, the student will be guided remotely by several Wereldschool teachers, each specialized in a subject area of the student, so that the student may ask any questions about the materials and receive feedback regarding their homework and tests. The parent retains a coaching role. You will help your child maintain a good study attitude, and check that your child keeps up-to-date with their homework.

If the student is enrolled in a complete secondary education package, they will also be assigned a mentor who will guide the student above and beyond their individual subjects. In the year in which the final examination takes place, an exam coordinator offers additional support.

Workload

The workload for the subject of Dutch language is about 3 hours per week, excluding the reading of (primary) literature such as novels. For mathematics, the workload is about 4 hours. For all other subjects, the student can expect to spend about 2.5 hours per week, per subject. For a complete package, this amounts to about 25 to 30 hours of study a week.

The Wereldschool would be pleased to answer any questions you might have about choice of subject or methods. Below you will find an overview of the methods for each subject, although the methods and subjects might differ per grade. In the higher level of secondary education, subjects are chosen, in consultation, to fit a certain profile or sector.
