While visiting different (vocational) colleges, companies and cultural sights in Finland participants will improve intercultural knowledge about culture and education. Our main focus will be on entrepreneurship, thus vocational teachers or those dealing with further education might be specially interested. Other interested teachers are invited to participate as well. Additionally we will try to give ideas about establishing projects and classroom tools.




- Experience different places of interest in e.g. Oulu, Oulainen, Nivala, Rovaniemi


- Examine different teaching methods and classroom tools


- Learn about vocational education


- Learn about European projects and project management, e.g. etwinning



Languages: English and German
