We have many different kinds of education in the Netherlands, from primary education and special education to higher education (universities and universities of applied sciences). Educational institutions are subject to regular change, which means they must be as flexible as possible. Shrinking regions, workload, suitable education and scope for professional development are issues that you will be facing today as an educational institution. Declining pupil numbers also often play a part. In short, educational institutions are facing significant challenges, which requires an efficient organisation in terms of policy and administration. Stakeholders are setting ever higher standards and want transparency about your activities and services, which is why a continuity section for instance must be included in your accounting.
