The MBO Raad is the Association of Colleges in the Netherlands, that represents all government funded educational institutions for secondary vocational education and adult education
On behalf of its 68 member institutions the MBO Raad promotes the collective interests of the sector, supports common activities of the institutions and acts as an employer’ organisation.
In addition to this the MBO Raad acts as an intermediary between the VET-colleges and the government, professional branch organisations, industries and other stakeholders providing the colleges with guidance and advice of their specialised consultants.
The MBO Raad promotes innovation in education in several ways, by encouraging good practice, organising conferences and developing support and information material. As representing organisation on behalf of all colleges, the MBO Raad is at the heart of the sector having a perfect position to disseminate innovations, also in the field of International policies.
