Education of International Newly Arrived migrant pupils at primary and secondary school level


National Project Group: The Netherlands

On the 14th of September, the National Project Group: The Netherlands took place in Rotterdam. On the 40th floor overlooking the harbour, EDINA stakeholders gathered to discuss the progress of the project. Among the attendants were representatives from the municipality of Rotterdam and Amsterdam, primary and secondary schools, Erasmus+, the national board of education for newly arrived migrants in the Netherlands (LOWAN), the RUTU foundation, Stichting Nieuw Thuis Rotterdam (Foundation for New Homes Rotterdam), the CED Group, the national board of primary schools, and of course members of the EDINA project itself.

The programme involved looking back at the previous national project group meeting, sharing updates in both primary and secondary education since then, setting the course for EDINA’s final year of dissemination in the Netherlands. We also presented two Master theses that were written within the frame of the EDINA project on parental involvement and diversity management in transnational project teams.

It was an informative afternoon, and also the last official National Project Group meeting in the Netherlands! The next meeting planned is the multiplier event for the Netherlands in March. For the exact date, keep an eye on our website.
