Academy launched ‘to educate leaders’

Two government bodies and a union have launched a training programme that aims to educate “selected decision makers” to ensure high quality education in Finland for the next 100 years.

The academy will bring together politicians and other influential figures to discuss and find solutions to what makes a civilised society. It also aims to increase the value of education, research and a good upbringing in Finnish society. 

“The education academy will update decision-makers’ knowledge and shape solutions for our unique learning model for the next 100 years,” said Olli-Pekka Heinonen, head of the Finnish Agency of Education. “We want Finland to be a good and inclusive society. This will only happen if every child can grow up to reach their potential and to receive the support and guidance that they need.”
