What do you do in your job?
Christel: I am involved in education in its broadest sense: teaching, developing and marking, as well as more management-oriented tasks, such as coordinating memberships for the Board of Examiners (and also the Education Committee in the past). I perform these tasks for the Health Sciences programme and also for Medicine and Biomedical Sciences.
In medicine, the foundation of most decisions in practice is evidence-based medicine. Good and thorough scientific research and education are an important part of this. I train people to do something with this knowledge in the future. A critical, scientific, broad perspective on developments within society, public health and medicine is indispensable, regardless of the profession you go on to practice.
Jim: I give presentations and workshops on various topics, such as social impact, inclusive policies and dementia-friendly communities. I also prepare reports and policy documents on the aforementioned themes and discuss them with stakeholders, such as local authorities, the province, but certainly also with the target group or the benefit group, for example people with disabilities.
Lisanne: The SWV PO 30 06 is a network organisation. Together with our affiliated schools and school boards, municipalities, parents and other partners, we offer a proper education and the right support to as many children as possible. I am the team leader of an expertise group for student-centred supervision and student-centred education. Our schools are located in five municipalities: Oss, Bernheze, Landerd, Uden and Meierijstad. My team and I are responsible for the extra support for students, teachers and school teams at 95 schools (from regular to special education). In addition, I participate in a project group that strengthens the connection between education and youth assistance in the municipalities mentioned above.
