What we offer

Finnish school abroad - A complete package

We cannot export the Finnish education system as such but we will co-create with clients to deliver suitable elements of it to fit local market conditions, offering assistance in localizing it and reforming the local primary education system according to the ‘Finnish School Abroad’ concept.

Our 360-degree ‘Finnish School Abroad’ solution is a complete package that combines the physical and digital dimensions of inspiring classroom and learning environments – architecture, design, technology – with the intangible aspects of education, from pedagogically optimised high-quality teacher training, to creative, self-motivating and active learning.T

It can include professional development programs for teachers; the knowledge and practical skills they need to improve elementary teaching, cloud-based e-learning platforms and infrastructure solutions, systems for assessment and evaluation, educational digital games, software and mobile applications, as well as digital learning content and resources. There are also options on offer for hybrid learning environments and harvesting data to develop better-tailored learning processes.
