Our educational institution consists out of different educational sectors (secondary and tertiary education). How does that work?
In the case of a combination institution, the following applies:
An educational institution applying for the CTL subsidy must formally be a publicly funded vocational and education training school, university of applied sciences or research university. We consider the legal entity of the institution (definition of an educational institution #1), it concerns the educational institution that can be found in RIO and that receives lump-sum allocations from the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science with a registration number.
The educational known to students and staff (definition of an educational institution #2) may consist of several educational institutions, known collectively by one name, and/or sharing locations and/or a board.
The subsidy scheme for CTLs is designed from the perspective of all tertiary institutions. These are also the accountability frameworks of Npuls. The application will has to be submitted by a vocational and education training school, university of applied sciences or research university (according to definition #1). It is also the case that the subsidy application (i.e. the projects, activities and results) must officially focus on tertiary education.
At the same time, the project can be inclusive in the wider educational institution (definition #2). After all, the CTL is expected to work institution-wide. This may therefore mean that although the organisation develops it from a tertiary educational part, the whole organisation can contribute to it and make use of it. Also, the definition of cooperation in the subsidy scheme does not impose any conditions on the ‘inclusion’ of other educational institutions, even if they are not from the same sector or do not apply themselves; so, for example, this may also include a secondary education school part.
This also applies to the concept of ‘lecturers’: all lecturers of the educational institution can, through internal cooperation, use what has been developed in/by the CTL.
In short: in the subsidy application and the accompanying project, you focus entirely on vocational and education training schools, universities of applied sciences or research universities But at the same time, you can parallel or consecutively allow other sectors to benefit ‘in-house’ from what is being done.
All this suits the objective of Npuls to make the national knowledge acquired and the facilities developed available to the institution in a way that fits its own context. And the own context in this case is a combination institution.
