TARGET

VisitEDUfinn Ltd. arranges teacher visits to Finland. We can offer to you and your staff a unique opportunity to learn from the famous Finnish education. You will see everyday life in Finnish schools and shadow local teachers to see how ideas could be integrated into your classroom at a practical level.

VISITS AND DATES

Dates for Visit and Learn:

October 2017, Tuesday 3rd to Saturday 7th
December 2017, Tuesday 12th to Saturday 16th
February 2018, Tuesday 13th to Saturday 17th
April 2018, Tuesday 17th to Saturday 21st

Visitors can choose kindergartens, primary schools or secondary schools and all these with variations of special education. The cities for visits are Vantaa (south Finland), Jyväskylä (middle Finland), Tampere (south-middle Finland) or Espoo (south Finland).

We recommend a group of two from one school, so the experiences can be shared and reflected during your visit. This may enhance more effective implementation at your own school. We cannot guarantee that a group of three persons (or bigger) is able to visit at the same school. However, all persons in a group can stay in the same city during the visit.

We would suggest you give yourself plenty of time to enjoy the wonderful experiences and cultural opportunities of Finland before or after your visit.
