About Us

Anyone already familiar with us knows that the CVO Brussels Education Center, CVO Meise-Jette, CVO Strombeek and CVO Vilvoorde centres for adult education have been effective partners for years. When, a short while ago, the Government of Flanders announced new, streamlining standards regarding the minimum size for centres, we decided to intensify our collaboration and work together more closely. This not only resulted in greater cooperation and exchange of expertise, but also permanent plans for the future, based on the firm belief that together we are stronger and better able to respond to the learning needs in our region.   
 
On 1 September, our four centres will merge into a single, new organisation. This means CVO SEMPER will be the largest CVO in the greater Brussels region and the northern periphery. With a dynamic team of 360 qualified and experienced teachers we are ready to challenge you and 15,000 other course participants intellectually, creatively or technically, day in, day out, at our 46 teaching locations in Brussels or Flemish Brabant.  
 
Whether you want to brush up on your French or German for work, learn Dutch to better understand your children's teacher, want to try Italian to get more out of your visits to the opera, regret never obtaining your secondary school certificate, have dusted off your sewing machine, want to learn how to Skype with your grandchildren on your tablet, feel it's high time you learned how to make a beef stew, or always wanted to be an electrical engineer, web designer or funeral attendant, you are welcome any time, even if you just want to meet new people! 
 
Check out our website. Under 'courses' you can explore all the courses we offer, from A for 'Arabic' and 'Android', C for 'Carer', S for 'Self-employed foot care specialist' and many more. Our administrative staff are also available to provide you with additional information at five secretariats (Elsene/Ixelles, Jette, Strombeek, Vilvoorde and Wolvertem). After all, everyone benefits from personal development, or an upgrade if you like!
