De Swingel works in close alliance with Verte. We conduct joint team-training courses, career orientation days and workshops. We read the latest specialist literature and enrol jointly in training courses to further our expertise.
De Swingel works together with Fri! Terschelling in secondary education for long-term team development programmes combined with intervision groups.
For three years now, Annie Hoekstra of De Swingel has been part of an international intervision group together with six colleagues from five European countries. This is a group of professionals specialising in supervision and organisational development.
Annie: “Two times a year we work for three days with each other on complex cases and, in that context, we take advantage of our differences in approach and national background.”
AMSTOR regularly provides training-course actors for De Swingel’s team building or training exercises. In these training sessions, AMSTOR’s actors are used in role-plays with De Swingel supervising the situations that arise out of them.
Anne-Maeike Jorritsma has acted as a fellow supervisor for many years. Annie Hoekstra: “We’ve kept up with each other as friends and colleagues since the time of our higher vocational education study programme. We have both been influenced by the work of I. Nagy. Anne-Maeike has made his ideas her life’s work.”
Folkert van der Woude is an experienced fellow supervisor. He is also a valued sparring partner and intervision colleague for De Swingel.
