Professional Development Training

Teach Like a Finn!

The competence of the teaching staff is a key factor in achieving quality education. Teach Like a Finn! is a certificate programme for teachers’ professional development. The focus is on the ‘how’ of teaching; the training gives practical tools and guides the teachers to use evidence-based strategies in their craft of teaching immediately. The key in all our trainings is the interactive atmosphere, where ideas are shared from teacher to teacher with a hands-on approach.
