In 2013, the Dutch government and social partners agreed on a social agenda, to adapt the labour market to the needs and demands of the 21st century. The so-called "sector plans" are part of this agenda. The social partners in the secondary education sector have drafted the Sectorplan-VO. SEOR has performed additional research into this sector plan. This study provides insight into:
- The experiences of schools with regard to the administrative burden accompanying participation in the sector plan
- The overhead costs for Voion, the organisation executing the subsidy arrangement, compared to the subsidy received by the sector
- The possible reputation damage to Voion, because of her role in the subsidy process
For this study, SEOR has conducted a literature study and has spoken to representatives of Voion, executive organisation APG and school boards. Furthermore, a written survey among school boards was used to provide insight into their experiences.
