Technische school.jpg

The school started out in 1910 as Ambachtsschool, meant to educate factory hands. In 1932, it moved to newly built premises on Graaf Florisweg 64 in Gouda, where it was classified as a lower technical school (LTS) and renamed Technische School in 1958, as it started offering secondary technical education. The first token was issued in this period.

Subsequent reforms of the Dutch educational system turned the school into Delta college, a school for Gouda and environs, offering individual technical education (ibo). It would form small classes with an individual approach and training in practice, working on real projects. The idea was to make an educational channel for those were not theoretically inclined or having problems of social integration. The pupils were loosely known as "difficult to educate", children of migrants were overrepresented and the form of education had a low status.

As segmentation tapered off, less schools were needed and small schools were merged. Two merger projects failed, possibly because its low status and because its pupils were considered difficult, but also because its teachers were older and better protected against lay-offs. The second token dates from this period. It uses the caduceus mint mark of the Utrecht mint and the bow and arrow sign of mint master Van Draanen (1988-1999).

The school has disappeared. The building on Graaf Florisweg was sold in 2014. It was turned into an apartment building. Above the main entrance is still the word Ambachtsschool.
