Ser­vices for edu­ca­tors and pro­fes­sion­als

We offer edu­ca­tion­al vis­its and in-ser­vice train­ing for teach­ers, prin­ci­pals and oth­er edu­ca­tion pro­fes­sion­als. The pro­gram can include school vis­its and vis­its to oth­er learn­ing envi­ron­ments, expert lec­tures and work­shops and/or job shad­ow­ing, not for­get­ting the time for dis­cus­sion and reflec­tion.

Edu­ca­tion­al vis­its for stu­dents and youth

We organ­ise edu­ca­tion­al and cul­tur­al pro­gram for youth vis­its and camps. The vis­its can have a theme such as sci­ence, cul­ture, art, sus­tain­able devel­op­ment, entre­pre­neur­ship and/or Eng­lish. The ped­a­gog­i­cal approach is based on learn­ing by doing and expe­ri­en­tial learn­ing. We also offer stu­dent groups the expe­ri­ence of study­ing in an Oulu school for a week or two.
