Kunskapsskolan i Sverige AB owns and operates all KED schools in Sweden. It also provides schools with shared services for real estate, IT, finance, marketing, communication and educational development.
There are currently 29 secondary KED schools and 7 upper secondary KED schools in Sweden.
Kunskapsskolan has been supporting UK schools with its SAIL project in being KED Inspired. SAIL stands for Student Agency In Learning. It is a student centered, highly personalized approach to education pioneered by Kunskapsskolan in Sweden for over 15 years and now used across the world. SAIL also benefits from a partnership with the Whole Education group in the UK. More than 17 schools in the UK are committed to the SAIL approach and being part of the wider KED Network.
More than 30 schools – and a growing number – are exploring the tools of the KED Program for a selected number of students. These schools are independent operators within the Dutch national school system.
Kunskapsskolan Eduventures develops and provides Kunskapsskolan’s offering and services in India.
Kunskapsskolan Eduventures opened its first KED school in Gurgaon in 2013. The school currently operates all grades from pre-primary level up to grade 9. Built to full capacity, the school will extend operations all the way through upper secondary school.
KED’s presence in India is expanding rapidly. There are currently two KED schools in Gurgaon, one in Lucknow and one in Abohar. The fifth Indian KED school is set to open in Bangalore in 2017.
The Great Oaks Foundation (GO) and Kunskapsskolan Education (KED) have established a partnership to provide the Swedish company’s innovative methodology, including its online curriculum, to the students who will be attending the Great Oaks Charter School in New York City. This school also occupies a facility that KED built specifically for the delivery of its student-centered program.
“Several years ago I visited one of Kunskapsskolan’s schools in London,” said Michael Thomas Duffy, the President of the Great Oaks Foundation, “and was deeply impressed by the student-centered program that I saw.”
KED has been selected as the preferred academic sponsor of the newly opened school Nün Academy, Kunskapsskolan Jeddah in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
In addition, KED is developing a complete curriculum for independent schools in the Middle East, provided through KED’s distinguished online Learning Portal platform, tailored for local curricular requirements.
The students and teachers who are using the KED Program are united to learn. As friends – buddies – students can help each other understand what they have to learn, find new strategies how to learn it, and see why they should learn it. Through the growing number of connections in the network, the interaction between schools is establishing itself as a central feature of the education we offer.
We call this interaction “KED Buddies”. The acclaimed teaching and learning methods of the KED Program help students progress through the curriculum of their home country, whilst on a global basis, students from different schools in different countries can join KED Buddies to work across borders. In this way, students gain valuable knowledge about subjects studied locally, whilst harpening their language and communication skills.
Christian Wetell, Deputy Head of Secondary Schools at Kunskapsskolan Sweden
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 100 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.
