LEADING IN LEARNING
STC Group is a worldwide leading educational and research institution to the shipping, logistics, transport and process industries. In the public domain, STC Group offers preparatory vocational education (VMBO), senior secondary vocational education (MBO) and higher professional education (HBO) under the Dutch system. In the private domain, it offers accredited masters level courses (full time and part time), business courses, training and consultancy.
Philosophy of education
While hearing and seeing leads to fleeting, temporary knowledge, doing and experiencing is what makes the difference in acquiring the right skills. STC Group is convinced that this approach works best. Students are only properly trained once they have attained the right combination of knowledge, skills and appropriate behavior. This applies both to younger employees who are just starting out in their careers and to experienced workers looking to maintain their professional knowledge or advance their careers. STC Group, therefore, offers both knowledge transfer in the form of classes and coursework in a stimulating, practical and simulation environment. Whereby, participants and students are given the opportunity to acquire substantial relevant experience.
Rather than limiting its scope to the Netherlands and Europe, STC Group actively shares its knowledge and experience with others worldwide. Our global network enables us to contribute significantly to the international labour market for transport in all its facets. At present, the STC Group has overseas subsidiaries in South Africa, Oman, Philippines, Brazil and Vietnam.
