Stellar Labs welcomes new Senior Learning Specialist

Our mission to close the skills gap continues apace. Which is why we’ve further strengthened our team with a new Senior Learning Specialist.

Jaan Couvreur joins us to lead and support our Learning Architects, and will be leading client and internal projects. Alongside his talented colleagues, Jaan will design and deliver training that transfers to the workplace. And we mean really transfers. Actually converts to competences that will satisfy the skills required to meet business demands today and tomorrow.

With almost 20 years in learning under his belt, Jaan is the perfect pick for this position. He is brimming with experience and in-depth knowledge.

A master’s degree in language and literature set Jaan on his path as a learning provider. From his first job as a college tutor through to roles as a learning consultant and manager of workforce transformation, Jaan has always put the learner at the centre of his work.

He has a genuine curiosity and passion for learning. Coupled with an ability to create award-winning training solutions that allow individuals, teams and organisations to grow.

“Jaan brings hugely valuable experience in learning and training, plus his own leadership skills to add to the team’s current strengths,” says Stella Collins, Co-Founder and Chief Learning Officer at Stellar Labs. “He’s really open to broadening his experience by diving deep into the science of learning and coming out with some treasure as the foundation for innovative solutions to real business challenges.”

And it’s the chance to harness the power of neuroscience that drew Jaan to Stellar Labs. “I’m fascinated by the relationship between brain function and learning. My passion is training that delivers genuine improvements for the learner and the organisation, so I’m really looking forward to applying science principals to workplace performance challenges.”

The ability to create training programmes that align with business objectives is a vital component for those looking to upskill, reskill and futureproof their talent strategy. Former clients and colleagues have highlighted Jaan’s commercial talent – a quality close to the heart of Stellar Labs’ Co-Founder and CEO, Raf Seymus.

“Jaan brings a wealth of expertise in leadership trajectories, learning analytics, instructional design, facilitation, sales and project management,” says Raf. “But above all, he is a good-natured, multilingual professional with a passion for effective learning and a great match for our team. No doubt our clients will love him too!”

We’re thrilled to welcome Jaan to the team as we continue to accelerate expansion. His input will be invaluable as we ensure Stellar Labs becomes a key partner for businesses looking to build a brighter future.
