VUC Storstrøm, Region Zealand
Is an adult education centre with approximately 200 employees of which 160 are teachers. We have about 5000 full time/part time students in 2019 with a turnover of approximately 18 M€. VUC Storstrøm covers a region with about 270000 inhabitants in a rural area and is represented in six towns.
VUC Storstrøm offers general adult education, higher preparatory examination, preparatory adult education (basic skills) and several special programs for learners with special needs, as well as custom-tailored courses for companies. Examination is mandatory in all subjects and on all levels giving formal competences. Our students are often adults – meaning from the age of 18 or 25 depending on the course – “second chance” students or students creating a new career path for themselves, so creating upskilling pathways is an integral part of our DNA.
All six of the departments operate as blended learning centers. They are fully digital and can connect through videoconference and collaborative tools. This means we can offer a wide range of educational possibilities no matter where our students are located thus ensuring equal access to education for all. This setup also means that we are working with many different types of students and study environments, and we are therefore continuously working with developing relevant and innovative learning designs to ensure that we can help our varied group of students.
