Work abroad for Greeks - The Eduployment Program
The Greek economy is growing again, but decent jobs are still scarce. However, there is an opportunity to work abroad for Greeks. Especially in the Netherlands, there is a shortage of good, certified nurses. That’s why we, at Pleyade, developed an educational program called the “The Eduployment Program” which prepares upcoming professionals in healthcare for a thriving nursing career in The Netherlands.
Whether you’re already are a nurse with a certification or a Greek student trying to obtain one, it all starts with an introductory course in the Dutch language followed by an internship, an advanced class in Dutch language and healthcare protocols, a state exam and ultimately a great job as a caretaker in nursing homes or hospitals.

The Eduployment Program in a nutshell
Greek students and certified nurses who are searching for work abroad are able to apply for the Eduployment Program through the website. It’s all self-explanatory. After signing up, you’ll follow a full-time beginner’s course in Dutch language, in which you will learn basis healthcare phrases and the most important words needed to adequately communicate. After all, it’s crucial to understand the client’s caring needs.
After completing the course, we’ll invite you to the Netherlands. For students this will be for an Erasmus internship of 6 months and for already graduated nurses an introduction period of approximately 5 months. During this time housing is arranged by our organization and students are given a scholarship, where certified nurses will be paid a competitive salary. Erasmus students can use this time to figure out whether they want to continue working as a nurse for Pleyade. Qualified nurses have already made the choice to come and work for Pleyade.
With the next part of the program, you’ll proceed to an advanced Dutch language course in which you’ll learn more about the language until you’ve reached the appropriate level for passing the state exam. Passing the examination is required for successfully requesting a nurse registration, which is obligated if you want to work as a fully responsible nurse in hospitals and nursing homes alike.
And then you can take full advantage of our opportunities by having your dream job while you benefit from the continuous possibility to develop and improve yourself as a nurse.
