CIV Groen

CIV Groen

CIV Groen is the foundation for the cooperation of entrepreneurs, the green educational institutions (VET) and the government on practical innovation, labour market and educational innovation.

Mission

CIV Groen, the Centre for Innovative Expertise, focuses on stimulating cooperation between entrepreneurs, green vocational educational and training institutions and the government. The main goal is to improve practical innovation, labour market integration and educational innovation. This is achieved by closely aligning education and industry, with an emphasis on the qualitative and quantitative alignment of educational supply with labour market demand.

Vision

CIV Groen aims to be at the forefront in offering up-to-date and innovative educational methods that respond to future needs within the green sector. The focus here is on digitalisation, technology and integrating international perspectives into the curriculum. Important is the practical incorporation of policy goals into education and the promotion of practice-based research in order to best prepare students for their future roles within the sector.

Societal Role

CIV Groen plays a crucial role in the transition to a more sustainable society by linking education directly to the needs and challenges of the green sector. The initiative promotes the influx of well-trained professionals who are able to make the link between their education and practical applications in the field, which is essential for the future-proofing of the sector. This not only prepares students for existing jobs but also equips them with skills crucial for addressing future challenges such as climate change, biodiversity, and sustainable agriculture.

CIV Groen also plays an active role in promoting lifelong learning and teacher professionalisation, thereby continuously improving the quality of education. The organisation is committed to developing a learning community where knowledge sharing and innovation are central, contributing to the development of both the individual and the entire sector.

Involvement of LeAD GLocal

Through several programs together with LeAD GLocal's co-working partners I contribute to promoting and making real life learning possible for green education and applying expertise in innovation and sustainability initiatives.
