Bookings are now open to attend our upcoming study visit to:The Netherlands

Monday, 2 - Wednesday, 4 March 2020

After seven successful study visits to Finland, we are now embarking
on our newest learning adventure to the Netherlands. 

According to Unicef’s report on child well-being in rich countries (2013), Dutch children rated the happiest in the world. Children in the Netherlands are ahead of their peers in childhood wellbeing, including material wellbeing, health and safety, education, behaviours and risks, and housing and environment. In comparison, the United Kingdom came 16th compared with 29 other rich, industrialised countries.

Our upcoming study visit will explore the why and how of the Netherland’s success, exploring its health, care and education system, cultural changes and innovative approaches.
