      Education cooperation
      and business:

      The rapid development of ICT and technology is contributing to changes in the business world that are increasingly driven by innovation. These developments threaten to widen the gap between education and business, as educational institutions are insufficiently aware of the technology applied, which results in knowledge lagging behind and education curricula not being adapted in time.

      PurmerValley adds knowledge and experience from the business community to its renewed portfolio of educational methods and concepts. Through these initiatives, the education on offer is no longer determined by what is available, but an important change is being made through demand-oriented modules and concepts that correspond to the wishes and criteria that the business community sets for training courses.
