Quality Education Skills
Founded by Fabrice Hénard, Learning Avenue aims to sustainably strengthen human capital by increasing skills, employability and innovation as well as to promote economic and social development. Its strategy consulting activities help decision makers (e.g. ministries and local authorities, schools and higher education institutions, stakeholders in training, employers, associations, and other groups) to design and assess public policies, namely by addressing the following issues: • What works and why? • What can be learned from international experience? • What trends and developments should be considered and anticipated? Learning Avenue’s fields of action include projects, programs, policies and strategies in schooling, higher education, vocational training and lifelong learning, innovation, and research and development. It provides the following services:
Assessment of the relevance and impacts of public policies.
Evaluations and comparative studies of systems, policies and mechanisms for quality assurance in higher education and other education sectors.
Support for developing strategies, forward thinking, strategic diagnostics, training in strategy and evaluation, and building monitoring systems and indicators.
These services are based on 15-years’ experience in education systems and higher education in France, other European countries and worldwide. Four principles guide the work: • A fit-for-purpose method, • A participatory approach, • A thorough understanding of the context, • An international added value.
