Why does Ajax organize educational programs? 

Ajax has a rich history in developing talent, with its recognizable philosophy as a basis. We want to share our knowledge and philosophy with others, to give them the tools to apply it in their own environment. 

Do I have to follow the 1* Ajax Education Program, before I start with the 2* or 3* Ajax Education Programs? 

This is not a requirement, but we do recommend following the programs in the order that is stated above. By following the 1* Ajax Education Program, you will be provided with basic knowledge about the club, that you can use in the following programs. However, it is possible to take several Ajax Education Programs at the same time. This applies, for example, to the 1*, 2* and 3* programs, unless otherwise stated. 

How do the different levels work within the Ajax Education Programs?

Within our education programs, we offer different levels.

1* Ajax Education Programs - you will get an insight in the Ajax organization and working methods at an introductory level.
2* Ajax Education Programs - you will receive some more in-depth education on a specific subject.
3* Ajax Education Programs - these are exclusive education programs where entry requirements apply. 
4* Ajax Education Programs - these are education programs at the highest level where admission is by invitation.

Can I follow an Ajax Education Program at the Ajax training facilities, De Toekomst? 

Yes. We provide education both physically at De Toekomst and online via our education platform. On the education pages on this website you’ll find more information about form in which the program is offered.
