It’s back to school for the Team Academy program

September 14th was the first day of the school year for our 47 teampreneurs (students of the Team Academy): 18 teampreneurs started in the first year, 17 moved on to the second year and 12 teampreneurs are in the third year.

As the realization of projects is a central element of the Team Academy’s pedagogical model, both teams worked on the realization of projects during the first weeks. Various projects ranging from events with “Wiil”, “Panier Montagnard” or “BeerPoint” to the realization of a business plan under mandate, and a waste collection service for private individuals.

These varied projects allow teampreneurs to develop the 21 skills targeted by the Team Academy program. Theoretical contributions will complement their practical learning through the reading of books and the intervention of teacher coaches during training sessions.

We wish our students every success in their studies and in the realization of their projects.

“To self-evaluate oneself is to know how to show humility in order to give oneself the opportunity to surpass oneself”

Team Academy’s semi-annual evaluations have just been completed. The format chosen for these evaluations is not a review but a true 360° evaluation that includes self-evaluation, peer evaluation, coaching and external experts. This high point of the training allowed the 41 teampreneurs (Team Academy students) to take stock of the development of the 21 targeted competencies and to orient them towards the learning priorities for the following semester. It was a challenging moment for the teampreneurs as well as for us, their coaches.

Time to go back to school!

Today September 16th is the first day of the new school year for the 45 students of Team Academy: 13 teampreneurs have been promoted to 3rd year, 12 to 2nd year and we are pleased to welcome 20 teampreneurs in 1st year.

The program of this first week is already busy! On the menu: kick-off, first dialogue and coaching sessions and several challenges as well as the appropriation of new work spaces for our students.

In order to promote and facilitate the exchange between the 3 Team Companies, we have set up a Community Board composed of representatives of the Team Companies and the Team Academy program. One of its objectives is to promote the realization of inter-Team Company projects or mandates, since project development is a central element of the Team Academy pedagogical model, which is based on learning by doing.

These projects allow teampreneurs to develop the 21 competencies targeted by the Team Academy program. Theoretical and reflexive contributions will complement their practical learning through the reading of books and the intervention of teacher coaches during training sessions.

We wish our students every success in their studies and in the realization of their projects.
