The Luxembourg EDU-System

Serge LINCKELS (SCRIPT/LUXEMBOURG/EDUCATION)As on April 11th 2016 I had an interview with M. Serge LINCKELS from the Ministry of EDUcation in Luxembourg (SCRIPT) on the site of « eduPôle », the building from the Ministry of EDUcation regrouping different services such as :

I hereby thank a lot M. Serge LINCKELS for the heartily welcome and ALL the possible information which he was allowed to share with me. The interview was about 1h:10 minutes, positively surprised about to have that much opportunity, thank You M. LINCKELS 😉 WE were ALSO talking a bit about my past, the WHAT I did in EDUcation to know BETTER each other… Well, that was at least one educator, teacher WHO was able to listen, a quality which MOST people have forgotten! He was ALSO SO friendly to give me the necessary contact information for questions which are NOT in his resorts, OTHER hierarchy…

Well, THAT ISN’T a problem (there are ONLY solutions anyway…), and I am feeling VERY HAPPY  about that one of my major questions was answered very positively. It is about inviting OTHER educators, teachers for visiting Luxembourg to find out about the  “LUX-EDU-System“! YES, it is possible, WE will discuss it in the question section 😉

Concerning the questions and answers WE will use initials such as:

  • [GM] for Gust MEES
  • [SL] for Serge LINCKELS


  • Concerning the  Lux-EDU-System: Is there an infographic available which explains visually?
