The combination of culture and educational training have since long found a permanent home at Alden Biesen.
Alden Biesen offers support to teachers and training staff in adult education through study days, webinars, project monitoring days and more, with a focus on heritage education. Tailor-made guidance is also possible thanks to the support of the Flemish Ministry of Education and Training.
Through Erasmus+ and Creative Europe Alden Biesen has been a partner for over 20 years in various European projects on heritage, education and storytelling. This has led to innovative didactic material and a series of refresher courses for teachers. Alden Biesen is currently a partner in the Erasmus+ project Delphi.
Starting in tthe 2021-2022 school year, Alden Biesen will organize a 'Young and European' project week twice a year. During those weeks we bring students from 4 schools and as many EU Member States together to fraternize in the inspiring environment of the Grand Commandery. For one week they work and debate together and scrutinize each other's political, social and economic positions. In the meantime, they also train their communication, social and cultural skills
