In association with Crescendo CVO

During these uncertain times, Crescendo CVO offers you the opportunity to further develop your talents so that you can respond quickly to the corona challenges and be ready to face the economic crisis.

With us, you can choose from more than 70 courses! You can retrain or train in vocational training, or you can prepare yourself better for the labour market by acquiring extra ICT or language skills. Moreover, early school leavers can come to us to obtain a secondary school diploma.

We offer classes at our campuses in Mechelen, Tervuren, Zaventem, Sint-Genesius-Rode and Halle or at any one of our many teaching locations in the Vlaamse Rand. Most of our campuses are open six days a week, from sunrise to sunset, so you can take classes both during the day and in the evening.

During these corona times we take the necessary precautions so that you can attend the classes in complete safety. We offer face-to-face learning in a safe and healthy environment, which we combine with distance learning as soon as necessary to ensure everyone's safety. Your health comes first with us!

Our language courses

To brush up your language skills, Crescendo CVO is the place to be. Spread across all our campuses and teaching locations, we offer no less than 12 language courses: Arabic, German, English, French, Italian, Japanese, Polish, Dutch for non-native speakers (NT2), Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and even Flemish sign language.

12 different languages

We offer beginner courses as well as advanced courses. Don't know what level you have? Then you can take a level test with us that will help us orientate you to the course that is closest to your level.

From the very first class we teach in the target language. So you can take part in our language classes regardless of your mother tongue. Our language courses are highly communicative and practical. You will soon be able to express yourself in your chosen language. What's more, with us you don't only learn the language: we also introduce you to new cultures, customs and traditions.

Advantages

Adult education offers a number of financial benefits, such as partial or total exemption from enrolment fees. For certain courses, you can make use of training cheques or apply to your employer for Flemish training leave. For youngsters, it is important to know that under certain conditions you can keep your child allowance between the ages of 15 and 25 and, after obtaining your secondary education diploma, you can apply to the government for a premium.

Furthermore, as a course participant, you will also receive an e-mail address from Crescendo CVO at the start of the school year that gives you free access to the Office 365 software package.

See you soon at Crescendo CVO!
