The Dutch work field may not always be as evident to non-speakers of Dutch that live in the Netherlands. What professions are out there? In what industries? The beroepenkaarten (profession cards) provide you with an instrument to gain insight into the Dutch work field. The cards can be used for training for the Orientation on the Dutch labor market (ONA) component of the integration exam, of in general for career paths.
The beroepenkaarten are intended as an instrument to open a discussion about professions and the participant’s interests. An image can both be the starting point and/or the name of the profession. With the cards, the participants can:
- gain a comprehensive overview of the professions per work field. The 14 chosen work fields each have a separate color. There are 10 cards per work field, with a total of 144 cards. The professions chosen are generally for lower education.
- build their profession-vocabulary. All the professions are visually supported with photographs, so that the contestant develops an understandig of what the profession looks lik in the Netherlands. This way, the cards invite for discussion.
- gain insight into the(ir) preference for certain professions and work fields.
There are many different possible workforms with the beroepenkaarten. Suggestions for these can be found on the website www.beroepenkaarten.nl.
