You can still follow classes at home on your computer, laptop, tablet or telephone, for example. But not for much longer. Starting 1 June, you will only be able to follow classes at school.
Requirements for following classes at home
If you want to follow classes at home, there are a few requirements for this:
- You need to attend classes at school for 12 hours first. If you are following a literacy course, you will need to attend classes at school for 48 hours first.
- You need to have signed a contract with your school. DUO must have received the contract before the start date of the contract.
- You need to have notified your school in a letter, an email or via WhatsApp that you wish to follow lessons at home. You must have done this before your classes started.
- You can only attend classes at your own school. You cannot change school.
- If you are following a literacy course, there are 2 additional requirements:
- Your teacher should give you assistance. You can practice without a teacher for a maximum of half of the total lesson time. But your teacher should be there if you need support.
- You can only use teaching materials that you have already practised at school, such as Diglin+.
Hours count towards exemption or ONA course
The teaching that you receive at home will count towards an exemption from your civic integration requirement or towards your ONA course. Hours of self-study do not count.
It can be more expensive to follow classes at home. You can ask your school about this. Your school will tell you how much the lessons cost.
