In the Netherlands more than 200.000 professionals are employed in the social sector. To maintain a high level quality of work they need to keep up to date professionally and to continually anticipate new developments. Professionalisation is an ongoing process that touches upon content and knowledge development of the profession, the position of the professional in the organization and in society, and his professional responsibility and accountability.
