Professional Development


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.
