The Deutsche Schulakademie (German School Academy) is an initiative for school development and teacher training. The Academy’s services are aimed at all schools in Germany as well as ministries, teacher training institutes, municipalities and private or church organizations in charge of schools. The Academy provides materials on good education and school practices and organises training courses and projects.
The Deutsche Schulakademie was founded by the Robert Bosch Foundation and the Heidehof Foundation. These two private foundations launched the Deutsche Schulpreis in 2006. Awarded annually, it has become the most respected recognition of excellence for schools in Germany. Since 2007, the winning schools have cooperated in a network and with other schools. In order to transfer the good practices recognised through the award to schools across the country, the Robert Bosch Foundation and the Heidehof Foundation set up the Deutsche Schulakademie in 2015. The objective is to take all models of good school practice that have been recognised through the Deutscher Schulpreis over the past fifteen years and to bring these to the wider school environment, to develop them and to anchor them in education policy.
In the course of reorganisation of our area of support “Education” in 2021, the Deutsche Schulakademie will by continued as an initiative by the Robert Bosch Foundation.
