BLANKCON is a consultancy company owned by Hans Blankestijn.
It has expertise in project management and consultancy in European projects, mainly for secondary vocational education in the “green” (agricultural) sector. The origin of BLANKCON can be found in AOC Raad, the Dutch Union of Agricultural Educational Centers (=AOC). As such Hans Blankestijn was responsible for many European projects. But he was also active in projects in India, China, Oman and Saudi Arabia.
BLANKCON works closely together with INTREEGUE (Hilda Weges) another small Dutch consultancy firm and Elke Halm from Germany.
Together they have a broad range of expertise in four main directions:
– Technical aspects of VET and pre-VET, including quality affairs and workbased learning,
– Educational aspects related to qualification structures, EQF and ECVET
– Issues related to the new green economy with themes like circular and biobased economy, sustainability, urban greening and food transition.
– Marketing and communication issues.
These four directions find each other in projectmanagement and advise and the development of (digital) learning and training materials and web-based learning platforms and tools.
