Providing insights on education in Finland



What?

INSIGHTS involves short-term learning visits, seminars, webinars, workshops and other learning events . We get a lot of questions from people wanting to understand the secrets behind the success of the Finnish education system. For this reason we have developed different ways to deliver insights and key information on Finnish education and its special characteristics.

How?

Education is globally acknowledged as one of the cornerstones for the future. The education system in Finland has been proven to be one of the best in the world, scoring consistently at the top of different studies, even though the pupils study the fewest number of class hours in the developed world. The Insight programmes deliver insights and best practices on how to organize education in a school community with qualified and motivated teaching staff. The programmes are built on four components following the framework of experiental learning. The learning process includes lectures, on-site visits (for visits organised in Finland only), individual work and facilitated group work, with the focus on experience, dialogue and reflection.

Possible tools and modes of collaboration for the insight process:

  • Exploring the Finnish educational success through Finnish expert knowledge - Top-level experts will provide the participants with the core information of the Finnish education system, as well as case studies of educational reform processes in both system and school level.
  • Observing Finnish education in practice - During the school visits participants have an opportunity to meet Finnish students and observe the teacher in their daily work. The Journey offers also an insight to Finnish pedagogical approaches, learning environments, and learning materials.
  • Reflecting on and conceptualising lessons learnt - In facilitated reflection workshops, the participants will discuss and reflect both the experiences and observations on a personal basis.
  • Adapting knowledge for use at home - Each learning journey ends with a conclusion workshop and an action plan of how the best Finnish practices can be used as building blocks for personal professional growth or for the benefit of organizational development.
