Feedback from participants

  • I want to thank the trainers again for this wonderful initiative. A new world of great opportunities for me and, more importantly, has opened for the school. 
  • It was indeed very rewarding: both the visit to the Finnish schools and related information as well as being with so many passionate people. 
  • Thank you for all this! A.
  • The more I think about it, the more I am convinced that this trip was very instructive in many ways. I learned a lot of information about the Finnish school system, but also a lot thanks to the numerous, sometimes noisy conversations with colleagues. I think we have a airly short period of time anyway never chatted so much about education. It also made ​​me realise that our teachers are doing properly well and that our fellow managers respect and appreciate their their commitment. And last but not least: I really do see beautiful friendships, and that's quite a nice bonus.
