With 15 different schools, approximately 13,000 students, 1,200 course takers and over 1,400 employees, Noorderpoort is one of the largest Regional Education Centres (Dutch: ROC) in the North of the Netherlands. We are based in the Province of Groningen and in Assen. Noorderpoort is large, but prefers focusing on ‘small.’ We have manageable-sized schools with individual characteristic features where everyone knows each other.

Secondary technical and vocational education (Dutch: mbo)

There is a choice of 170 mbo programmes from level 1 to 4. A level 1 programme (entry level) can be started without any qualification.

Company training and education

Noorderpoort also offers adults retraining or further education. We offer a comprehensive range in various fields such as technology, health care and the professional service sector. Moreover, all our mbo training courses of the BBL variety are accessible to adults. BBL, the basic profession-oriented learning path (Dutch: basisberoepsgerichte leerweg), is the combination of working and learning.
