Sometimes it is necessary to take a literacy course prior to the integration process. Literacy, or learning to read and write in our alphabet, is the stepping stone to integration and participation in Dutch society. We work in small groups of students with a similar level. By doing so we create a pleasant and safe learning environment where each student is challenged to achieve his personal goals at his own pace.

Can I apply for funding this course?
Literacy is a transition path for passing the naturalization exam. The funding falls under the ‘Wet Inburgering’ and runs through the ‘Dienst Uitvoering Onderwijs’. For more information about financing this course, click here.
Kusters scholing & training has a separate department for literacy courses. We distinguish between illiterate (can not read and write in their own language) and other-alphabetized (can read and write in their own language, but not in ‘our’ alphabet). Illiterate people work in groups of up to four students and other-alphabetized work in groups of up to five students. Hereby students will always get the personal attention they need to achieve their goals while working at their own level and pace.
