What is Erasmus+ Job Shadowing?

VisitEDUfinn Ltd. offers you and your staff a unique opportunity to learn from the famous Finnish education system by job shadowing Finnish teachers. During your visit, you will observe everyday life in Finnish schools and see how local teachers in their classrooms apply Finnish education in practice. For job shadowing, we recommend a group of at least two people from one school, so the experiences can be shared and reflected upon during your visit. This may enhance more effective implementation at your own school. However, we cannot guarantee that a group of three people (or larger) can visit the same school. 

You and your colleagues can job shadow in any type of school, except for university: kindergartens (1-5 years), pre-primary (6 years), primary (7-12 years), lower secondary (13-15 years), high schools or vocational schools (16-18 years). You can choose your preference during the online registration process. The schools are in the Helsinki metropolitan area (southern Finland) unless you prefer otherwise. 

"The Finnish teachers were very friendly, enthusiastic and helpful. We loved watching them teaching. It was very insipiring. Both are excellent, motivating teachers and persons as well. They provided us with plenty of information and support."

"Job shadowing in Finland was an amazing experience! Seeing how education can be truly both student and teacher and not exam centered was inspiring."

"The experience was more than awesome. It was excellent to learn about a total different reality and system. Although being different it was possible to grab many ideas."

"In Finland we met warm and friendly people. The welcome us and introduced us not only to their classes but even to their lives. I have never met such lively people. Moreover, I learned more than I expected."

"I learnt different methods of teaching and a better way to develop competencies."
