Part-time learning and part-time working

'Part-time learning and part-time working' caters for pupils from the age of 15 who wish to combine education and work. They can do so through the various Learning and Working Centres in Brussels or via an apprenticeship organised by Syntra Brussels. Pupils can also obtain a certificate of the 2nd or 3rd stage or a diploma of secondary education through these centres.

Do you wish to register your child in a center for 'part-time learning and part-time working'? Go to the school/centre between 24 April and 9 May 2019 and put your child's name down. Pupils with Dutch-speaking parents will enjoy priority during this period for up to 55% of the places. Brothers and sisters of pupils, children of members of staff and GOK/non-GOK pupils do not qualify for priority.

On 10 May 2019, the open registration round commences. Does a certain school/centre still have places available? In that case, everyone can register.

To register your child for an apprenticeship organised by Syntra Brussels, contact the apprenticeship manager:

Which documents should I take with me when I go to register my child?

Go to 'my file' > 'which documents'

How do I qualify for the priority arrangement Dutch?

Check out the site in Dutch.

Will the school check my documents?

Yes. If you claim to enjoy priority (Dutch, GOK or non-GOK), you must also be able to substantiate this on the basis of a document. The school will ask you for the relevant documents when you apply for a place. When you go about registering your child you will need to take these documents with you. In other words, the school will check the documents twice. If your documents are correct, your child will be given priority. If the documents are incorrect, your child will lose its priority status.
