- High-quality education is about more than just obtaining a good report card. It is essential that children and teenagers are motivated and enthusiastic for the development of talents
- Children are given the opportunity to discover their motivations and talents at an early stage by gaining practical experiences in primary school, so they can ultimately make a well-considered and motivated choice of study
Zikke is committed to good primary education and wants to give children more than just a report or a CITO score. Children are allowed to discover their motivations and talents at an early stage by gaining practical experiences in primary school, so they can ultimately make a well-considered and motivated choice of study. Rabobank Enschede-Haaksbergen supports this by funding three schools of the Consent foundation, to introduce children to the business world. This allows these schools to undertake numerous activities, and children gain numerous experiences from them as an extension of the educational programme at school. It is a collaboration that is interesting to both the school children and then Twente business community.
The schools can link Zikke’s activities to their educational programmes so children can gain practical experiences. Examples include company visits, for which they prepare in class and reflect afterwards, technology days, and numerous other activities in the field of sports, art & culture, language & communication and nature & science. Children can log their experiences in a Zikke portfolio, a lifelong timeline from primary school, to studying, and eventually on their way to a job.
This next generation can get to know many different professions and professional fields at a young age by letting them gain practical experiences in primary school. It also allows the business community to enthuse and even recruit motivated children and teenagers.
Rabobank Enschede-Haaksbergen is eminent and involved in the region. They are committed to talent development and a strong local economy. That is why Rabobank Enschede-Haaksbergen, together with Zikke and the participating schools, is actively looking for partners that also want to be a part of this or a similar collaboration.
