Cooperation between the Flemish Institute for Healthy Living and the Department of Education and Training

In 2016 the Flemish Government set up the objective that by 2025 80% of the Flemish schools works with pillars of the whole school approach. To attain this objective, the Flemish institute for Healthy Living (funded by the ministry of Health) monitors the policy in schools and develops several tools helping schools.

The ministry of Education supports this work by several measures, including updating policy frameworks: a new decree on pupil guidance, a new framework for the quality of education and new learning outcomes. Health policy is included in all of these frameworks. A video to promote Healthy schools makes this clear - have a look.
