We offer teacher training, professional development programmes, and education consultation services. We are passionate about sharing the Finnish education concept, and we are happy to speak at seminars and conferences in the GCC area. By virtue of having been invited here by the Ministry of Education, we are honoured to be involved in education reform tasks in collaboration with the Ministry and other key stakeholders.
