Rooted in longstanding psychology research, our learning model draws upon the most innovative educational practices from around the globe. We have expanded upon a model that has already proven itself in Europe and the US. The fundamentals are: Learning How to Learn, Incubating Talent & Boosting Creativity, Becoming Business and Future-ready.
Upon graduation, our students are TEK stars, equipped with a chameleonic mindset and ready to work on the global stage. They are project-minded, product-oriented, team players who are English proficient and customer-oriented.
Our curriculum is hands-on and project-based. Our students learn by completing real-world and industry-level projects and tasks. They take action and learn by solving problems.
Intek mentors provide support and guidance with a 1:1 student/mentor ratio. Alongside an immersive business-ready learning ecosystem, this student-centered approach allows students to naturally explore new ideas, organize their knowledge and grow their expertise.
We have taken the best from the world of games and turned our curriculum into a digital playground. Because learning and fun combined together breed success.
Our students are Recruits for a two-year-and-half long Campaign. They need to complete various Missions, overcome increasingly difficult Waypoints. They are guided and led by our talented Hartmen. At each step, they are awarded with Ribbons and Medals. They ultimately improve their Rank, moving up from Private to Lieutenant.
Grades and IQs do not determine career success, soft skills do. Technical expertise on its own is not enough - it needs to be supplemented by interpersonal skills. Skills that allow our students to express themselves clearly, confidently and with empathy. Skills that allow them to lead and complete projects on time. Skills that turn them from being just a co-worker to being an inspiring colleague and leader.
Soft skills are a fundamental pillar of our innovative learning model. We instill them throughout the curriculum by weaving layers of soft skills into every step of our student learning experience.
Moreover and in addition to a series of soft skills workshops, our students will enjoy an Agile & Scrum training program as well as an intensive 16 month online English training on top of a weekly two-hour live interaction with a native teacher. Both trainings will lead to two recognized certificates: TOEFL and Professional Scrum Master.
While our students learn and use the latest technologies, we encourage them to develop a chameleonic mindset and be future-ready to embrace the digital age.
We have hence created a full immersive business-ready ecosystem where our students can experience and engage in-house with startups, leaders and industry experts.
Our programs Starter by Schoolab@INTEK, Talent & Innovation Factory, Leadership 4.0 and TEK Talks are designed to nurture creativity and innovation, the only most human of talents that will never be replaced.
The sense of belonging is one of the most basic human needs. Building communities helps our students feel uplifted, encouraged, inspired and supported. Within the INTEK community, our mentors empower them to open new doors, enable them to focus on their goals and help them achieving their dreams. Likewise, by actively sharing and contributing to the community, our students will strengthen their skills and broaden their experience. Our open space environment and all our activities are hence structured to ease and enable community spirit and collective intelligence.
Our innovative scoring matrix provides a detailed PET scan of the student skills allowing companies to identify precisely the talent they really need.
Our hard-skill metrics measure the student coding ability against five criteria: Proper Functioning, Readability, Clarity, Maintainability and Performance. The hard skill scores account for 60% of the global scoring.
Our soft-skill metrics take into account many criteria: Commitment & Attendance, English Proficiency, Team/Community Spirit, Project Management and Professional etiquette.
Every one of these metrics is measured against a set of competencies for each project throughout the 2.5-year curriculum and ultimately defines the student’s progression curve as well as his or her potential.
All these valuable data will be made available to our sponsors and partnered companies through our talent search engine.
