Building national digital services for the education sector
Microcredentials, pursuing education without administrative barriers, digital learning materials, the collaboration between educational institutions and the job market – all hinge on a robust infrastructure and the right digital services for the education sector. With the ‘Digital Services for the Education Sector’ program component, we shape the collective ICT landscape in Dutch public further education. This ensures easy and efficient collaboration between institutions, with the job market, and with suppliers.
The program component, in close consultation, realizes the facilities that arise from the projects of the other Npuls program components. Consider facilities for the dissemination of digital learning materials. On the other hand, the ‘Digital Services for the Education Sector’ program component has the task of monitoring the coherence and safeguarding of public values.
Digital services for the education sector encompass all activities required to develop, provide, maintain, and support digital services. Think of a learner’s own digital identity and wallet. To make these available and maintain them, digital services for the education sector are needed that are jointly managed and implemented by every institution. In doing so, we take the national sector architectures of VET (MOSA) and higher education (HOSA) as a starting point and work together with the program components, educational institutions, and chain partners.
