Lifelong Learning

Lifelong Learning

ETF is committed to stimulate ‘lifelong learning’. Anyone interested can apply to follow courses under a credit contract, provided one fulfills the admission criteria. Our courses provide many possibilities to deepen your knowledge. In addition, you are also equipped with helpful tools to approach the practice with a new outlook.

The ETF Summer Colloquia are particularly suitable for lifelong learning. During these colloquia, students and lecturers from a wide range of Church backgrounds meet one another for an intensive week of study at the ETF. Throughout the academic year, our residential Master courses are particularly attractive, as the lectures are presented in blocks of one or two weeks.

For pastors and Church workers

ETF Summer Colloquia and selected Master’s courses offer pastors and Church workers an attractive form of continuing education. ETF also organizes study days or conferences aimed at people involved in Church. The ETF Summer Colloquium is one of the recognized courses of continuing education (‘permanente educatie’) of the Protestant Church in the Netherlands (PKN). For other study activities, you may apply for individual accreditation.

For anyone interested

Most courses and study days at the ETF are open to everyone looking to increase his/her professionalism in the practice of work and/or Church. The Institute for Leadership and Ethics in particular aims at bringing together professionals, academics and students for dialogue and reflection.
