Successful Schools Sweden
Think like, work like and be one
WHAT DO WE DO? We help schools, school districts and municipalities to organise the teaching and learning process for even greater focus on what is to be delivered: the curriculum, learning and student results – to make a difference for students regardless of their background and situation. We use our structure and handbook for successful school management – called The Model – to help you involve and engage all staff in the processes so that it affects everyday life in your school/-s – for real!
RESEARCH AND BEST PRACTICE. How do successful schools think and work? All that we do is based on Swedish and international research about successful schools. It clearly indicates that the characteristics of schools that add value and achieve good results include, among other things; high expectations, clear objectives, structure, analysis and systematic improvements in the processes around teaching and learning.
WE BELIEVE THAT IT CAN BE DONE! There are schools and municipalities that over time reach high student results. However, many schools and municipalities struggle or have had falling results. At the same time, there are schools and municipalities that have improved results step by step despite the same tough conditions as many others. We belong to those who believe that improvements can be achieved – both now and over time.
TEACHING. The core of school improvement and the purpose of quality assurance and performance management is that teaching shall improve over time. All pupils or students are worth fantastic teaching, not later – but NOW. All teachers are worth enjoying constructive feedback, job satisfaction and the opportunity to grow. Even so, few other professionals are so isolated in their work, or get so little feedback, as Western teachers. What a great opportunity! That is why we have developed the app-web-video solution called BRAVOLesson.
