CINOP Global

CINOP Global focuses on a strong connection between education and the labor market. Together with schools, governments and partners, we work on capacity building, curriculum development and examinations, among other things. Our projects worldwide range from support in capacity building at the Schools of Hygiene in Ghana, to implementing female Colleges of Excellence in Saudi Arabia, to support in Quality Management in the initial training of nurses and midwifery in Benin. To get the finest results out of every project, we work in close collaboration with the best local universities (of Applied Sciences), VET institutions, training providers, consultancy agencies, research institutes and knowledge centers. CINOP is engaged in the development of innovative approaches and turn-key solutions, but is also an established expert in complex educational issues such as:
