On Tuesday afternoon, eleven schools have put their signatures to an agreement to work together. They do this under the name ‘Brainport Scholen’ (Brainport Schools).
The agreement will be signed during the Knowledge Festival ‘Leren in Brainport’ (Learning at Brainport). This is not without a reason. The festival is characterized by its innovations in education, which is something the schools are also involved in.
The objective of the Brainport Schools is to make the region more intertwined with education. Therefore the ‘DNA’ piece of Brainport should be reflected in the classes.
What students will learn should connect to the professional practice. Thus the business sector greatly benefits from this new approach to education. Students will be prepared for a life of learning.
This cooperation involves high schools, all located in Southeast Brabant.
