School District 1 Antwerp is one of the 28 Districts of GO! Education, which represents public education providers under the authority of the Flemish Community. It comprises all levels of education (from preschool to adult education, including level 5 of EQF).
The school district is responsible for 24 primary schools, 15 secondary schools, 3 centers for adult education, a center for learning at the workplace, an arts academy, a music academy, boarding facilities and a center for learner counseling. Annually 25000+ learners enroll in a course and over 2800 staff members are striving to assure and offer excellence in teaching and learning.
The schools are primarily based in the city of Antwerp. All educational providers in this area act within a societal metropolitan context, which has rapidly changed in recent years.
