“Providing high-quality education and training and equal opportunities for all citizens is a long-term objective in many countries. Education is seen as a key to competitiveness, prosperity and wellbeing of any society. As the world around us changes, the schools need to change as well to meet the requirements of tomorrow. In co-operation with the Finnish Ministry of Education and Culture, the Finnish National Agency for Education, Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland as well as Romanian counterparts, we have identified three fields in which the experience of Finnish education experts could benefit the Romanian society. That is why this Seminar will focus on teacher education and life-long teacher training, curriculum planning and vocational education and training. In addition to the Finnish experts’ sharing their knowledge, during this event we invite you, policy makers, education experts and other stakeholders of education, representatives of associations or companies, to join us in the discussion about these topics,” says Mrs. Päivi Pohjanheimo, Ambassador of Finland in Romania.
This event is part of the bilateral and EU presidency cooperation between the Embassy of Finland and Romania.
