Based on the positive experience of Kunskapsskolan’s collaboration with corporate partners at some of our upper secondary schools in Sweden, we have developed a model for adult education to help adults acquire the competence that our corporate partners are looking for.
One of the partner companies offers elderly care. We have crafted a two-day-course for nurses in how to use coaching techniques, based on how teachers in the KED Program work with personal coaching of students.
We have also extended our established cooperation with Swedish construction company NCC. Together, we provide a one-year education program that combines theoretical courses in language, culture and social aspects, with a practical internship at NCC. The aim is that students will be able to start working for NCC after they finish training with KED.
Kunskapsskolan’s practice within adult education operates under the brand “SkillEd”. The intention is to set up a complete infrastructure for adult education based on the KED Program. Our goal is to operate broadly over all sectors of the Swedish education system for adults, through extended partnerships.
The Kunskapsskolan schools are among the leading schools of Sweden. The success of its KED Program can be judged not only by students’ performance being higher than the Swedish national average, but also by the growth of KED schools across international boundaries. Currently, over 80 KED schools and KED Inspired schools are operational across Sweden, UK, the Netherlands, India, USA and the Middle East. The schools follow the curriculum of each country and grade student performance according to national standards.
