Tailor Made Offer


The Transition Academy offers a variety of tailor made workshops, trainings and learning trajectories for organisations and (local) governments, based on our extensive experience in post-academic education. A tailor made course can enable a group of employees to embark on a collective learning journey, develop their personal competencies and boost your organisations capacity to actively engage and respond to societal transitions.



We have worked with many (local) governments in the Netherlands, Norway and Germany, with institutes such as the IRTA research institute in Barcelona, and several organisations in health care, education, water management, construction and culture to create tailor made courses.


“The training helped us to take a step back from our daily routine and project-based way of working. Instead, we focused on our long-term ambitions and position in the field of education and on the paths we need to follow to succeed. In addition, the course helped us to establish a common language and conceptual framework, and helped us sharpen our approach.”

Thematic Modules


For a one or two day workshop, we offer a number of basic modules. These modules are flexible, which is to say they can be adjusted and fine-tuned to the specific needs of the participants and the commissioning organisation. The timespan of each module can vary from 30 minutes to 3 hours, depending on the amount of time available and the degree of interaction. If participants are not yet familiar with the subject matter of transitions and/or transition management we advise to incorporate the first two introductory modules in the programme.
