Over the years, many highly educated or educational specialists have applied to us for positions only to find out that their particular Dutch or international qualifications – or former work experience – is not formally recognised by the Dutch Childcare Authorities.   As Zein continues to grow, so does our need for quality staff, so we have created a solution to this recruitment issue.

The Zein Academy International Talent Programme (ITP) is a tailor made training programme that aims to aims to support enthusiastic talented people looking for a future career in the field of international childcare.

The ITP offers both international and Dutch candidates, who hold childhood education qualifications and/or experience, but are not officially qualified to work with children in the Netherlands, an approved and professional solution for meeting the Dutch legislative requirements.











Successful candidates will follow an in-house training scheme alongside a modified version of the Dutch ‘EVC’ (ervaringscertificaat) process.  Working on a daily basis within either Day Care or Out of School Care groups in The Hague, candidates will receive on the job training under the guidance of experienced Zein staff.  In addition to this hands on approach, trainees will also receive a programme of Zein Academy Training sessions, covering all aspects of international child care and the Zein approach to working with international families.
