Hello all, the subject pretty much sum up my question. Does anyone know where I can get data on the level of programming competence in Belgian high school leavers?
Are any of this fine community Belgian and have something to add?
Please let me know!

I'm currently working for a company who is looking to recruit a lot of IT roles in Belgium and we wanted to know what the level of coding is like over there so we can tailor the recruitment and interviewing to the correct level.

Would it not help perhaps by contacting a local University/College and asking them? I know some may want to shoot you through their recruitment procedures...

An idea maybe to contact High Schools and find out directly or who they report their results to...

Alternatively look for the Education Board and see if they publish that data or not... [Tried it but no luck, try using a language translator to perform the search...]

This information might get you started perhaps...
