This structured course is designed for teachers, head teachers, principals and other school staff who would like to learn about the Finnish education system, which is regarded as one of the best in the world, especially after its good results in the Pisa Reports during past years.
The course has a general focus on the Finnish education system although the pedagogic encounters with schools are focused on Primary, Secondary and Vocational levels. However, participants working with other educational levels may also benefit from the general approach of this course.
This 7-Day Structured Course efficiently combines pedagogic encounters with schools, seminars, workshops, and field projects “Contexts4Content” to places of natural, historical, and cultural significance. This will provide pedagogic insight for participants and ideas for development of teaching resources for their students. All these elements will help you to better understand the education and culture of a society that has a high regard for its teachers and is highly committed to the future of its young citizens through education.
Please note that this course should be included as a Structured Course in your Erasmus+ project.
