ADVISORY & COACHING
It consists of making a diagnosis together with the School Owners and Board of Heads in order to design an Educational Project of Excellence, BY TRAINING THE TEACHERS (of every level).
During the academic year, Grace monitors and collaborates, depending on each proposal –which might vary according to the needs and styles of each Institution, as well as considering the school’s educational and commercial profile, which makes the families choose that institution in particular for their children-.
