De Rooi Pannen, entrepreneurship in practice

Comprehensive School De Rooi Pannen provides high-quality education. Our locations in Tilburg, Eindhoven and Breda offer pre-vocational (VMBO) and secondary vocational (MBO) courses in the retail, hospitality, tourism/recreation, design and marketing/events fields.


The pillars of education at De Rooi Pannen are:

  • Small-scale setting

We offer a safe learning environment in which students feel at ease. Respect and consideration for each other are the key words here. De Rooi Pannen is known for its ‘living room feel’ and we are proud of that. We are convinced that talents are best utilised if the student feels at home at school in a secure atmosphere. For years, we have therefore made the conscious choice to remain on a small scale. We have our own building with our own team of teachers and support personnel, where everyone knows each other.

  • Practice-oriented education

De Rooi Pannen puts entrepreneurship into practice. And we do that, for example, by bringing practice in-house. The students receive practical lessons in our private training hotels, restaurants, kitchens, bakeries, the unique shopping centre, events agencies, the aerospace room and the sign company. They also gain practical experience at inspiring internship companies in the Netherlands and abroad.

  • Entrepreneurial students

Along with the requisite theoretical knowledge, having the right professional attitude and good social skills is essential for a successful entrepreneur. At the branches where De Rooi Pannen provides training, there is often a need for people with nerve, who dare to take the initiative and whose thinking is creative and customer-oriented. We believe that it is our job to encourage students to perform well and to take responsibility. We also expressly allow them to grow as people and as future professionals.


Practical facilities

But De Rooi Pannen is more than just a school. Shopping in the shopping centre, an overnight stay in one of the hotels, seasonal products in the intermediate pre-vocational (VMBO) shops, an Iris gift voucher at the VVV office or lunch or dinner in one of the restaurants. Our students enjoy receiving guests in the practical facilities of De Rooi Pannen.
