Educational Consulting

A team with varied professional and cultural backgrounds

Quite often, schools and other educational institutions are rich in knowledgeable educators and educational leaders but still struggle to transfer their vision into reality. Similarly, an organisation may find itself stagnant, either because it is difficult to agree and formulate a vision or it exists but change has been cumbersome, unstructured and inefficient.

 

Leveraging on many years if pedagogical and organisational innovation at CLIP – Oporto International School, CLIP AdvancEd offers a team of educational consultants with varied professional and cultural backgrounds who understand the process and leadership for change. 

 

Our educational and organisational consulting services are based on the premise that “no recipe fits all”. Thus, we aim to support change and accelerate the development of innovative learning experiences, tailored to each school’s context, culture and principles.
