Cost & return
You are a teacher
Additionally, you may want to visit our Brussels lab for a couple of immersive training days. What would you do for us in exchange?
You are a school
Schools typically need organized training and coaching for their teachers. To our experience, most of the schools that tried to transform themselves without quality external help, failed to change. A school with 100 teachers needs 3 phases of transformation over 3 years, involving 12 pilot teachers at the beginning and most of the teachers at the end.
Contact your country’s hub for more information.
Key performance indicators include:
- increased academic performance,
- increased satisfaction for families,
- decreased sick days for teachers.
As an example of financial return, reducing school failure by 20% in a 100 teachers Belgian’s college = 144 000€/year of cost savings for the government in teacher’s salary.
You are a government or school network
Countries or cities first need a local hub: one of your schools already transformed to be visited by your other schools in your language and culture. Building such a hub first implies many teachers traveling to the Brussel’s lab for training, and local coaches to be trained by us. It’s a multi-year transformation plan starting with a few pilot schools.

Short term financial return for a country is triggered by:
- decreased repetition (failed years),
- decreased sick days for teachers to be replaced.
Long term financial extends outside the education ministry. For example, +25% at PISA score in for a tiny country such as Luxemburg = +$116 000 000 000 according to OCED.
