Short description

bke = basic examination qualification​.


As a lecturer in higher education, you face many challenges in your work. In addition to keeping your subject knowledge up to date, being aware of didactic choices and the way in which you can connect with today's students, the assessment of knowledge is a challenge. In its quality programme, Fontys University of Applied Sciences pays explicit attention to lecturers' development and their teaching practice.

Examination is an important part of education. As a professional you know that assessments are more than the written exams and assignments at the end of a term, but also include the moments during your classes in which you help provide insight in the progress of your learners. During the BKE (Basic Examination Qualification) training the focus will be on developing your knowledge and skills regarding assessment.

The goal is to obtain the bke certification. Combined with your bko certificate you meet the requirements for the national basic didactic skills qualification (bdb) profile. The bke training is independent of the certification process, which is offered by FKO. In order to obtain the certificate you need to go through the assessment procedure which consists of a portfolio and an additional interview.

You need to sign up for the certification procedure separately. You will receive more information at the start of the training.

Time investment: the average time investment for the bke course is 40 hours. This includes the course days.
