The UTQ (Dutch Basis Kwalificatie Onderwijs, or BKO) is described in more detail here. Excerpts from the detailed description appear in the remainder of this section:
The University Teaching Qualification
programme aims to provide new university teaching staff with the opportunity to develop competencies necessary to carrying out their current and future teaching duties effectively. On completing the programme, participants should meet the requirements of the university teaching qualification.
The UTQ programme is chiefly intended for all new or less experienced lecturers with teaching duties. Obtaining the UTQ qualification is obligatory for all new lecturers at the Delft University of Technology [...] The various sections of the programme are also open to any lecturers wishing to further develop their didactic qualities.
The programme has been designed based on typical questions confronting new teachers. Questions such as: How can I make my lessons interesting? How do I keep my students motivated? How do I prevent problems concerning students .not pulling their weight.? How do I give individual feedback to a group of students? How do I make an objective assessment of a report?
The programme has a maximum study load of 160 hours, spread throughout the whole year. This includes the time spent on developing and preparing your own teaching activities. The duration of the complete programme varies from half a year to one year. Note: the study load does not include the formation of the evaluation portfolio, an activity that takes at least 100 hours. Personal note: the study load is under-estimated by more than 25%, especially for designing material for ongoing courses, as reported by many of the participants involved in the UTQ programme in 2012.
