HOW AUTONOMY AND FLEXIBILITY CAN ATTRIBUTE TO A BETTER QUALITY OF EDUCATION
The course is organized in the famous medieval city of BRUGGE ( BRUGES - FLANDERS - Belgium). Participants are lodged in a delightful hotel located in the historic centre of the city.
Belgium is a federal state where the competences on education are completely devolved towards the 3 Communities (Flemish Community, French Community of Belgium and German Community of Belgium).
The Flemish Community or Flanders has full and complete autonomy on the organization of its educational system and educational policy.
An exploration of the Flemish education system may be interesting, since the PISA results show that Flanders is a top-performer in reading literacy, mathematical literacy and scientific literacy. Flanders obtains the first place for mathematical literacy and the second place for reading literacy immediately after Finland and Ireland.
Furthermore the Flemish education system is based on a lot of autonomy for schools (School Boards). On the pedagogical level, this autonomy and flexibility is repeated for teachers.
Recently a lot of schools are exploring and experimenting new ways of organising the school structure, the curriculum, teaching methods…

The course is organised by a consortium of European educational organisations that worked together in previous international projects.
