We have customized a special school visit opportunity for education enthusiasts attending the Educa event. You will see how learning occurs in a typical classroom setting. During the visit, you will also have time to talk with Finnish teachers and ask about their teaching practices, methods, or challenges during their daily work. The visit also includes the famous Finnish school lunch.
If the Educa School Visit date is not suitable for you, or you want to visit for instance a kindergarten or a high school, you can book a Private School Visit. It would be exactly the same but you can choose the date between September 1st until December 15th and from January 15th until May 15th.
Learn from the famous Finnish education system by shadowing Finnish teachers. 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.
