Founded in 1801, the Netherlands’ Inspectorate of Education is one of the oldest state Inspectorates of Education.

The Inspectorate:

  • stimulates schools and educational institutions to maintain and improve the quality of the education they offer;
  • assesses the quality of education of the individual educational institutes and the education system as a whole in the Netherlands and its developments;
  • communicates in an accessible way with all its target groups and stakeholders;
  • reports to the public.
