Join the online information session

Would you like to discover whether a coaching or counselling training programme suits you? Or are you already a coach and would like to level up your skills?

If so, join us at the online information session on Thursday the 2nd of February 2023. The session will take place from 7 PM until 9 PM.

During this online session you will:

  • Receive information about how to become a coach or counsellor in The Netherlands.
  • Learn about ACC’s training programmes and what can be achieved with them.

STAP stands for ‘Stimulating Labour Market Position’. People in the Dutch labour market (either in a job or job-seekers) can apply for a STAP budget of up to €1,000 for educational purposes. This means that you can study at the ACC and receive a contribution of up to €1,000 from the Dutch government. During the event, we will provide all the necessary information about STAP so that you will be well informed about the STAP subsidy before the next application period starts on the 28th of February.

Who can apply for the STAP budget?

  • You are between the ages of 18 and retirement.
  • You are a citizen of the European Union (EU) or the partner of an EU citizen.
  • You have been insured under the Dutch national insurance scheme (Premie Volksverzekeringen) for at least 6 months in the past two years.
  • At the moment of application, you do not receive any other financial assistance for study costs from the government (such as study financing, a teacher’s grant or financial assistance for school costs for adults).
  • The training programme you want to follow is listed in the STAP training register (applies to all ACC’s training programmes).
  • Your programme will start within 3 months from the application date for the STAP budget.
  • You have not yet received a STAP budget this year, and there is still budget available at the UWV.
  • You must attend at least 80% of the class days.
