The STC-Group is a worldwide operating educational and research institution for the shipping, logistics, transport and process industries. In the public domain the STC-Group offers preparatory vocational education (VMBO), senior secondary vocational education (MBO) and higher professional education (HBO) under the Dutch system. In the private domain it offers accredited master’s-level courses (fulltime and part time), business courses, training and consultancy.
Philosophy of education
While hearing and seeing leads to fleeting, temporary knowledge, doing and experiencing is what makes the difference in acquiring the right skills. The STC-Group is convinced that this approach works best. Students are only properly trained once they have attained the right combination of knowledge, skills and appropriate behaviour. This applies both to younger employees who are just starting out in their careers and to experienced workers looking to maintain their professional knowledge or advance their careers. The STC-Group therefore offers both knowledge transfer in the form of classes and coursework and a stimulating practical and simulation environment in which participants and students are given the opportunity to acquire substantial relevant experience.
Rather than limiting its scope to the Netherlands and Europe, the STC-Group actively shares its knowledge and experience with others all over the world. Their global network enables us to contribute significantly to the global labour market for transport in all its facets.
