About Qeqqata Kommunia 

As the first municipality in Greenland, Qeqqata Kommunia has chosen to focus on IT development through iPads. Besides there has been a focus on language with English from 1st grade.

We are working on creating a primary school that creates students who are ready for education. We are therefore focusing on strengthening the cooperation between school and home, among other things by employing 3 school consultants focusing on cooperation between school and home, as well as transitions between steps - from day to day at school, but also in the education system.

Besides from February, there has been established close cooperation with the municipality's social advisors. Family classes have been created in city schools. Visible management and leadership development is one of the focus areas. Since all students and teachers have iPads in Qeqqata Kommunia, it would be advantageous if the applicant is familiar with iPads as a tool.

City schools use school intra daily for weekly plans, contact with parents and internal contact at school. TEA (Tabulex Student Administration) is used daily for student registration and for Angusakka at least twice a year. The use of IT is therefore part of the daily work.
