The Onderwijscoöperatie is a Dutch cooperative for professional development of teachers: by teachers and for teachers. About
250 teachers work through the Onderwijscoöperatie to strengthen the position of their profession and encourage professional development for teachers.
A small office, located in Utrecht, supports their activities and projects. Established in 2011, the Onderwijscoöperatie represents four major teacher organizations (AOb, CNV Onderwijs, FvOv and Platform VVVO), which equals about 200.000 teachers in primary, secondary, special needs and vocational education; around two thirds of all teachers in the Netherlands.
