what we do
We transform Finnish education and training best practice into global next practice for public and private sector customers. Our goal is to provide tangible change for individuals and organizations.
Finland is a leading country in education, entrepreneurship and innovation. 98% of Finnish companies are SME’s and therefore we take the training of entrepreneurs seriously. The Finnish diploma program for entrepreneurs has contributed to the success of Finnish startups for over 20 years.
We support developing thriving entrepreneurship ecosystems by offering programs focusing on:
- Developing an entrepreneurial mindset
- Setting up a business
- Growing an existing business
All tracks are recognized by the Finnish National Agency for Education and lead to competency-based diplomas.
OEP’s corporate training programs take business operations to the next level. Our programs support tackling the day-to-day challenges of the employees in the rapidly changing business environment.
We offer onboarding programs for new professionals as well as upskilling programs and career track boosters for experienced supervisors, industry professionals and managers.
In corporate training programs you learn what you need
Our in-company training programs, courses and professional qualification programs are tailored to both the company and individual needs. Learning is based on the present and future job requirements ensuring long-term competence.
Developing new skills at work
The corporate training programs bring learning to the workplace. All programs are part-time as goal-oriented work-based learning and hands-on projects are a part of the learning journey. The programs blend workshops, online learning and food for thought material.
The professional development programs support teachers, principals and other education sector staff in creating an environment that promotes learning for life. More than content and methodology, the programs are about understanding the elements and mindset that make Finnish education best in the world.
To support you in developing next practice, our professional development programs showcase what we be believe are core elements of all successful education systems.
We partner with the University of Helsinki Continuing Education HY+ and the internationally recognized schools of the City of Espoo to ensure the necessary expertise is at your disposal also for large-scale projects.
