Choosing a right major can be tricky. Sometimes, you find that the study you’ve chosen does not fit well with you. There’s a feeling, you’ve made a wrong move and are unsure about the next step. That’s why we created Fontys Empower TEC (technology + entrepreneurship + creativity). Empower is a first, it's a full-time educational program for students who have dropped out and are looking for a fresh start.
During the program students stay socially connected in a dynamic learning environment and discover their real talents and interests to make a well-informed choice for a major that truly fits their identity.
All students are welcome.
The core focus of the program is on professionalising identity development.You will develop your (future) professional skills, learn hot creative tools, unpack your personal identity and will be supported by individual coaching to transform into a Self-Directed Professional.
During the 21 Empower-packed weeks, you experience varied activities and challenges that you take individually or in a group.
your identity ...
... is the first step to
make a well-founded
One challenge every three weeks.
And a different subject for each.
You are given time and space to land. And you will discover your interests and inspirations.
Who and what made you, you? You will dive in your life's story and create a game about it.
For who or what do you want to mean something. Discover your values and how you want to make an impact.
From your own fascinations and expertise you will develop a solution to a societal issue.
You will compare your newly acquired knowledge with existing education to discover what fits what doesn't.
Work on a challenge that you defined which is connected to your interests and aligns with your goals.
Empower is a flexible and modulair program, this means that students can register and start every three weeks during the whole school year.
Even if you are studying outside of Fontys you will be able to join our Empower program.
