Duration of programme
The programme includes an individual intake interview, 6 training sessions of one day and 3 individual coaching sessions of 1 hour each with the trainer and an assessment interview. Between each plenary session candidates get together with a peer group (a subgroup consisting of 3 to 4 participants) to work on assignments. There will be four peer group sessions of 2 to 2.5 hours each. Candidates jointly determine the dates for these peer group meetings.
The STQ track covers a period of 12 months.

The application of candidates for the VU Amsterdam STQ track takes place on the recommendation of the portfolio holder for teaching or the director of education of the relevant faculty. The approval of this portfolio holder or director is a prerequisite for participation in the STQ track. Selection is partly based on the information provided in the questionnaire. If there are more applications than available places, a limited enrolment lottery is held by faculty size. Following a positive decision by the STQ admissions committee, the candidate’s admission to the STQ track is finalized, provided that there are sufficient places.
