A unique workplace
Last year 250 students from Albeda College and Zadkine received practical training onboard ss Rotterdam. The ship provides many training options (e.g. security, facility services, secretarial, maintenance, engineering, hotel and catering & tourism).
Studying onboard ss Rotterdam
In fact, some students receive full training onboard the ship. In Dutch the project is called Stage Sterren op de Rotterdam (Trainee stars onboard Rotterdam). The project is a joint venture between Hotel & Restaurants and both ROCs. In special classrooms dedicated to this purpose students are trained to become chefs and hosts (level 2), gaining both practical and theoretical experience. To organise traineeships and courses onboard, a traineeship office has been called into existence in cooperation with ss Rotterdam.
