Secondary vocational education

How can we help you?

For young people with a technical-oriented secondary vocational education there are endless opportunities in the port labour market. The Rijnmond region has several educational centres focusing (entirely) on working in the port.

Secondary vocational education often is the last step before entering the labour market. That is why we want to make sure that young people, in particular those with technical training, are well informed about career opportunities in the port.
