Datum: 13 December 2022

At International Social Work (Hogeschool Arnhem en Nijmegen) we have an international classroom with both Dutch and international students. Therefore, we are looking for supervisors who speak English.

About International Social Work

At BISW, we want to educate social professionals who can methodically tackle global themes. We train students to work together with local communities in an international setting. Students work systematically to set up projects and make contact and connection with local and international contacts. The goal being connecting people and empower the individuals and communities they work with, so that they become more resilient and self-reliant.

During their 3rd and 4th year students are following an internship, possibly abroad. During 10 months of this internship they will receive 12 supervision sessions in groups of 3 – 4 students.

Profile ISW supervisor

As a supervisor for ISW students it’s a plus if you have feeling for global issues (migration, climate change, interreligious conflict, poverty), since these are the issues the ISW students are going to face during their internship. You are familiar with the challenges that come with working in an international context.

These issues affect the student’s personal and professional wellbeing and development. You can create a learning environment in which these profound experiences can be discussed in such a way that the students learn from it both as a person and a professional, and from each other’s experiences. In order to explore and learn from their input, you have a variety of (creative) working methods and approaches.

You are skilled in the English language and feel comfortable with guiding the supervision session in English and possibly online.


If you are interested, have questions, or if you are not sure if your level of English is well enough send an email to Dorine Ringlever (coordinator supervision ISW, Feel free to write your email in Dutch.
