In our education, you as a student are central. Education promotes the integral development of your talent and educational learning process. This is not just a question of talent but of mentality and of 'wanting it badly'.
As a student, you have to take into account the demands and discipline of the future profession. But it is also important that your artistry has a personal necessity and is related to your aptitude and need to communicate through the performing arts.
Within education, you are relatively independent as a student. In addition to what the programme offers, you are given the freedom to explore, experiment, find inspiration, suggest new possibilities and look beyond the fences of your own discipline. You will have to open yourself up to perspectives that may not come naturally to you while gradually becoming aware of the culture-defining nature of your own ideas and views. Self-insight and critical reflection, in addition to knowledge acquisition and its application, are indispensable skills for successfully completing your education.
A point of reference in the assessments is whether you, as a student, are (eventually) able to rise above the professional competences and are able to interpret the profession in your own, independent way.
You learn to develop a vision and shape your profession in your own way. Because you learn to cooperate during your study programme, you can already place yourself in a professional context during the study programme and work towards a joint professional field of the future.
The school thus aims to provide a climate in which the development of skills is accompanied by the development of a critical and reflective capacity, enabling you, as a graduate, to influence and change existing practice.
Teachers and students share responsibility for the teaching-learning process. The study programme is responsible for its offer, study opportunities, choices, guidance and facilitation.
As a student, you are expected to learn by discovery and ask questions. As the programme progresses, you should be able to make the right choices regarding the educational provision and take initiatives to steer your own process. By seeing coherence, discovering your own preferences, you will be able to organise your own learning process and develop - what is called, with a fancy word, self-learning ability. This self-learning ability is important for the future. Because we want that, when you are later out of school, you will still continue to learn and develop yourself.
