The cross-functional UX Design course gave me everything needed to find a suitable job for me. I think it has the perfect combination of learning and hands-on experience. I would definitely recommend it!

Carlijn van Engelen
Product Designer

This course is a must-attend for both data enthusiasts and non-data specialists. I came into this course thinking it would be hard to follow, but the trainers and workshop itself made me understand that this is a skill set we can all learn and need now (not to mention the multitude of tools you get as well to start applying the learnings immediately).

Ali Fenwick
Founder & Chief Scientific Officer

Growth Tribe delivers extremely good value for money and they are able to make complex matters very accessible. Their workshops are fast-paced, easy to grasp and full of useful tools.

Jasper Mutsaerts
Startup Coach

As a brand and marketing professional, I found the course entry to approaching my work in a more data-driven and analytical way. I know I will start benefiting from this new knowledge from the first day back in the office. So the investment in terms of time and money will be immediate to both me and my company.

Merran Wrigley
Global Head of B2B Systems

I just really enjoy the way GT cuts all unnecessary and complicated things and motivates everyone to just go for it. Start, get your data right, make the right decision, fail and just adjust. Even from a corporate perspective it is liberating and just so true; just do it.

Nassim Cherifi
Business Analyst

If you need a course in which you want to learn every part of data analytics, this is the course!

Ramon de Ruijter
eCommerce Specialist

I was looking for a robust introduction to Data Analysis so that I could more accurately estimate my own abilities within the field. I got exactly what I was looking for and now feel confident to perform Data Analysis on my own projects :) Thank you so much GT!

Jordy Backes
Shopify Expert and Developer

This course is a great way to dive into the world of data analytics. Not only will it expand your knowledge of theory and tools, it also helps you put theory into practice right away. The instructors are extremely helpful and always willing to help you push your development further. Definitely recommend!

Nadine van der Wal
Global Growth Marketer

Growth Tribe challenges the status quo of universities / MBA programs / etc which have fallen behind in terms of teaching people skills for the data age. You learn far more in one of their 12-week classes than an entire top-tier 3-year degree.

Frequently asked questions

I’ve submitted my form. What are the next steps?

We’re excited to get your funding secured so you can dive right into your course! You should have received a confirmation email after submitting your form. If you didn’t, please check out question 2 below.

We’ll take care of uploading your application to STAP. If you have DigID set up, you can sit back and relax until July 1st, when STAP application assessment begins. If not, please use this time to set up your DigID.

The next round of STAP funding goes live at 10 a.m. on July 1st. At that time, you’ll need to log into the STAP student portal (still being built) with your DigID and enter the student number from our confirmation email to verify your application. We’ll remind you when it’s time to take action.

Once your application is verified, the government aims to give Growth Tribe confirmation within 24 hours. If your application has been successful, we’ll let you know via email and send you all the information you need to start your course.

I completed the pre-registration form but didn’t receive a confirmation email. What should I do?

We recommend checking your spam folder first. If you still can’t find the email, it’s possible you unsubscribed from Growth Tribe communications in the past, and our system therefore isn’t allowed to send you emails due to GDPR.

Please send an email to support@growthtribe.nl including your full name so we can manually send your confirmation and update your subscription settings if needed.

Can I switch courses, my email, or other application details after I’ve pre-registered?

If you've pre-registered with Growth Tribe and would like to change your details, please reach out to support@growthtribe.nl.

If you’ve applied & been approved with UWV STAP, we’re awaiting process instructions from them. In the meantime, please also reach out to support@growthtribe.nl.

How can I cancel my application with Growth Tribe?

Uncertain about moving forward with your STAP budget application at Growth Tribe? Speak with one of our learning consultants to get advice on course selection, the STAP process, and more!

If that guidance doesn’t help and you decide to withdraw your application, please let us know at support@growthtribe.nl. We start submitting applications on June 16th, so it may not be possible to withdraw your application from our side after that date. In this case, simply don’t use your DigID to verify your application on July 1st.

I’m not an EU citizen, but I am a Dutch resident with a BSN. Does this make me eligible?

Unfortunately, only EU citizens, their registered partners/spouses, or their children are eligible for the subsidy. They must have a tie with the Dutch labour market (earned wages in the Netherlands at least six months since March 2020).We hope the government considers widening its eligibility criteria for STAP, but if this ever does happen, it’s not likely to be soon. In the meantime, there are lots of other ways you can fund your Growth Tribe course:

  • Pay for it yourself
  • Ask your employer to fund it (use your work training budget, if you have one)
  • Consider the other financing options we provide
  • Participate in our referral programme to get a chance to win a free course
I’m not eligible for STAP under the current requirements but I was really excited about the opportunity. Can I just apply anyways by saying I’m eligible?

Unfortunately, no. Lying about your eligibility to STAP can result in you being banned from education subsidies through 2027, so we strongly advise against it.We hope the government considers widening its eligibility criteria for STAP, but if this ever does happen, it’s not likely to be soon.

Which Growth Tribe courses can I use STAP funding for?

Easy - any of them!

Since we’re an NRTO-qualified trainer, you can request up to €1,000 in funding for any Growth Tribe course. If the course you’re interested in costs over €1,000, you can still apply for STAP and fund the remaining cost yourself or through your employer.

How many people can use the STAP budget? Will it run out?

The government has allocated funding for STAP through 2026. STAP money becomes available in two-month windows - for 2022, this means that funds will be released on the 1st of March, May, July, September, and November.

Each time more funding is released, it’s allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. Demand is high, so you need to be quick! This is why it’s key that you verify your application as soon as you can on the 1st of July (more info in question 1).

If the budget for the period in which you’re applying gets used up before you’re approved, you can reapply in the next period. We’re acting as fast as we can to get your funding secured, but if it runs out too quickly, we’ll reach out to support you through the next application round.

If my STAP application is approved by the government, what requirements do I need to meet to keep the funding?

Once your application is approved, you'll need to complete 80% of your course within 6-months of the start date for on-demand courses. And you'll need to attend 80% of the course sessions for the live courses - to keep your funding for both.
