The Berghs’ Approach

A fundamental element of education is conversation. Berghs fortifies new knowledge through teaching, reflecting, and sharing learnings. In our view, feedback is a cornerstone for creating lifelong development. Berghs always works with a team of relevant advisors – our Advisory Board.

Our teaching method

The framework for our eduction is based on Action-Based Learning, which consists of reflection and active experiences to develop knowledge and skills. This can be summarized as a ”constructivist view of knowledge.” In the context of education, this means that you create your knowledge yourself by interpreting and reflecting on your experiences. Above all, you learn by applying that knowledge – it’s simply more effective and more fun to learn by framing facts in a context.

Applied learning, generous space for reflection, and feedback are important to us at Berghs. We don’t exclude theories and models, but we remain pragmatic in how we value them; in other words, how well they work in practice. We prefer to work with cases, in workshops, and to collaborate in groups to share experiences with each other. A creative or strategic task benefits from being solved by applying different perspectives.

Berghs’ Advisory Board

Berghs’ Advisory Board highlights the challenges that companies, agencies, and organizations are facing today, as well as communicating which skills are lacking or need strengthening. The Advisory Board is also an important forum for Berghs’ strategic development. Providing high-quality education is our primary goal. We average 4.2 on a scale of 5 in student and customer satisfaction surveys across all our various educational formats. The ability to sustain continuous quality and create a base for innovative communication is measured in competitions such as AKQA’s Future Lions. Berghs meets quality criteria from the Swedish National Agency for Higher Vocational Education for the full-time programs, and from SAUF (the Swedish Association of Certified Training and Educational Companies) for the courses. Our finances have remained stable over the years, earning us a strong credit rating.
