For more than 40 years Aeres Training Centre International has coupled training programmes and consultancy with well-respected implementation projects worldwide. Our regular training programmes follow the internationally-recognized framework of the Orange Knowledge Programme (OKP) and, for short courses, the MENA Scholarship Programme (MSP).


The Orange Knowledge Programme merges the Netherlands Fellowship Programmes (NFP) and NICHE into a single integrated approach as from 2018. The OKP Countrylist has been published on the Nuffic website. The aim of OKP is to aid the development of the capacity, knowledge and quality of individuals as well as institutions in the field of higher and vocational education. The five year programme is initiated and funded by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs and managed by Nuffic.

You choose which programmes fit the best with your ambitations. We offer a wide variety of programmes that focus on techniques for developing countries, but also programmes that build on your capacity as a mid-career professional. Our programmes are available to NFP or MSP scholarship recipients and to those of you who will support yourselves financially.

Our goal is to teach you how to be successful in your chosen field. And how to apply what you have learned in your home country and beyond.
