Mozaïk-Portal from GRICS


GRICS has announced that the development of the first phase of the new Mozaïk-Portal is well underway. By June, schools will have an ideal tool to maintain the link between parents and the school, the Parents Portal.

This first phase is an alternative to site "My children" in Edu-group. The Parents Portal offers all the desired information by parents to track the success of their children, and communication tools with the staff of the school.

All children of the same family are grouped together, regardless if they are in different schools or whether they are primary or secondary! No need to look, all the information is there! In addition, information is always at your fingertips whether on a smartphone, tablet or computer.

Teachers should have access to the new Mozaik Portal in the fall, it is not clear if vocational education will be included by GRICS in this evolution of the Edu-group portal.

The result is a job market with a strong demand at the high and low ends, but a hollowing out of the middle.
