Within the vocational education at JTH there are many opportunities for collaboration for you as a hiring company!

You can contribute by shaping the content of an education to suit your and the industry's needs by being part in a steering committee.

You can increase your visibility as well as contribute to the implementation of the education by inviting to a study visit or holding a guest lecture for the students.

You can contribute to the students' practical learning, at the same time as you get the opportunity to meet and "try" students out in your business by offering a LIA placement (Learning in a work environment).
