Teacher Job Shadowing

January 15 - December 15

What is Teacher 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. Before returning home, you will meet a Finnish education expert and share your experiences during a wrap-up session. 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. 

"It was an incredible trip! My feedback is nothing but positive, I absolutely loved it. The teachers were amazing and kind. They even took me to the rowing competition in Helsinki and we had so much fun! I loved working with the kids." 

Joanna Schmidt, Memorial Middle School, USA
