Klasse to focus on teachers in future

Summary

The Flemish education department’s Klasse platform has presented its plan for the future after facing budget cuts

Digital focus

Klasse, the Flemish education department’s multimedia platform, has presented its plan for the future. Klasse has had to adjust its publication schedule because of budget cuts. At one point, it thought it would have to cancel all of its print publications – separate magazines for teachers, students and parents – and be available only online. It now seems that one of its print publications is saved: the one targeted at teachers.

Klasse 2020 sets out the procedures for the next five years, beginning on 1 September, 2015. The emphasis on print will disappear, and Klasse will have a digital focus. The website will be relaunched, and the organisation will be more active on social media. It will also collaborate more with other media.

Although the focus will shift to digital, there will still be a printed magazine – a new publication for teachers that will publish four times per academic year. Teachers will, in fact, be the main target group of the new Klasse. The sub-brands such as Klasse voor Leraren, Klasse voor Ouders, Yeti and Maks! will also disappear under the new system.

“But the needs of directors, parents and students will still be addressed as well,” the organisation wrote on its website.
