Dictionary of Dutchness


The Netherlands has 46 ROCs (Regionale Opleidings Centra or regional training centres) which offer a complete range of vocational training for both teenagers and adults. The ROC concept was developed in the 1990s when vocational education was revamped: smaller colleges merged to create much broader institutions. Until then, vocational training had been taught at hundreds of specialised trade schools.
