Debat.NL SkillsTracker facilitates feedback
Colleagues serving as an example and a fresh perspective from a new colleague proves to be an excellent source of fast learning. Therefore, participants in the Debat.NL Skillstracker have the opportunity to ask feedback from their colleagues.
It’s an example of how we apply the theory of 70 – 20 – 10. You learn most from on-the-job experience (70%), a lot from your colleagues (20%) and only a small part from standard courses (10%). With our app you receive feedback and tips at the moment you really need it.

Partnership 2021: Debat.NL and the Dutch Association for City Councilors
To meet the need of local councilmembers the Dutch Association for City Councilors (4000 members) wants to use the Debat.NL App. For the past couple of years, Debat.NL developed animated videos about municipal council issues and training services in the field of political debating skills. Given the desire to support councillors individually, we are partnering up in developing our app to further support local politicians in improving their persuasion skills.
