Project Manager mbo-hbo doorstroom (0,5 fte)

Who we are
At the Aviation Academy, our ambition is to provide the current and next generation of professionals with the skills they need to meet the international aviation challenges of the next 10 to 15 years. We do this by combining both education and research, working closely with industrial and academic partners across the globe. This emphasis on collaboration boosts our students’ professional and research skills by placing them in real-world aviation settings. Here, they can prepare themselves for their future aviation career while bringing about tangible change within the companies where they will work. Collaboration with partners provides input for our research agenda and this results in a continuous update of our curriculum. Our current program focuses on ‘Sustainable Operational Readiness’ and we specialise in six topics: Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul, New repair methodologies, Safety & Human Factors, Airport & Airspace Capacity, Security & Technology and Flight Operations Engineering. The students within our program come from a variety of educational backgrounds: HAVO, VWO and middelbaar beroeps onderwijs (mbo).

As an employer, we believe that the more inclusive we are, the better we can perform as a knowledge institution of and for the city. We therefore strive to see the diversity of backgrounds and perspectives that Amsterdam has to offer reflected in the workforce of our university. If you have tips on how we can improve our communication in the field of diversity and inclusion, let us know.

Why the need for this position?
Research shows that mbo students’ success is significantly increased by not only good preparation for the transition from mbo to hbo but also due to effective support after the transition. Within the Faculty of Technology and the Aviation Academy, we want to create more support and offer better preparation for the mbo students when making the transition from mbo to hbo. This has resulted into a project ‘verwante doorstroom mbo’. The goal of this project is to improve and enhance the substantial transition between pre-hbo education and higher professional education within the existing ‘mbo-hbo program’. The mbo-hbo program as it stands now is in need of revision, improvement and extension and we need to explore various options on how to improve and/or change the current program.

  • Internal & external communication about the program
