Abstract

In our symposium we discuss 20 years of Dutch practice about the cooperation between universities and secondary schools in preparing students for successful studying. Though the increasing numbers are worth to mention and clarify, not all problems have been solved. As the main values, we state that a good cooperation between schools and universities in educational programs stimulates the study success rates in the universities. Due to better preparation, teacher professionalization and attention for quality of enrolment the study success is increasing. But in practice, there is a lot to discuss about content, organisation, ownership and long term investments. In our symposium we will address three kind of perspectives on these problems: the governmental / state level, the university level and the school level. Representatives of the Ministry of Education, universities and school boards will elaborate their problems, plans and actions for improvement on these three levels. We will show interesting successes in qualitative and quantitative pictures, but also a lot of questions left for further research, policy and practical actions. The symposium will be organized around information about these three perspectives and audience participation by Q&A’s and cases.
