COOL – Certified “Impulse School”: COOL at VILLA BLANKA
COOL is Cooperative Open Learning, which gives students more autonomy, responsibility and freedom to shape their learning for themselves, either alone or with others. When students are allowed to allocate time themselves and draw on their own individual strengths better, it increases their motivation. We are attaining the aims of COOL by establishing a new feedback culture in the Class Council, by providing feedback on work carried out independently and punctually, and the culture of work and reflection in engaged and additionally-trained teaching teams.
COOL alumni hold an extra qualification when they enter the world of work. They receive a COOL certificate in which we confirm that they have been trained on self-organisation, time management, reliability and teamwork, and that they have acquired communication skills, problem-solving abilities and conflict resolution capabilities.
