Vision on education

Technological, societal and economic developments influence and change the world around us, now and in the future. Fontys delivers an important contribution to these necessary changes by meeting more than the needs of the student and the world of the future. Our significance also lies in our effect on the implementation of the changes in society – regional, national and international. Our added value lies in our proactive role – in the joint designing and development of a sustainable and fair society.

We deliver this added value by linking talent development to change in societal sectors and fields of work. Our function as an open knowledge institute is to provide the form by linking education and research to current societal issues. This is how we contribute to innovation in the field of work, the professional context and social sectors. We form the regional, national and international agendas in cooperation with our social partners. We are proactive and future-oriented so that we can have the necessary impact on society, today and in the future.

We deliver this added value by investing in talents. For us, talent is a personal natural aptitude or characteristic that enables you to contributeto society. Talent allows people to use their strengths. Fontys is there for everyone who wants to discover and develop their talents at the higher vocational level and everyone who wants to continue their professional development. We offer space to all cultural and social backgrounds.
