In recent weeks GSE has begun plans to bring the Finnish Curriculum into its portfolio that already includes; UK , IB, American and Australian curriculums.
The Finnish Curriculum is now world renowned and the education community knows it. The Curriculum looks to transform K-12 learning in schools across the world through with its curriculum at its core, enhanced with best pedagogical practices from around the world to create an interdisciplinary, personalised, and locally relevant system.
The Finnish Educational System provides personalised and purpose-based learning that creates a unique learning path for each child and prepares them for an unknown future.
Finland’s Quality on the global stage is recognised as the:
#1 leader in providing future-skills education according to Economist Intelligence Unit, 2019
#1 in well-being and happiness according to The UN 2019 World Happiness Report
#1 in quality of primary education according to the World Economic Forum’s Global Competitiveness Index 2018
The curriculum values being bold, collaboration, empowerment and innovation which certainly fits in well with us at GSE and represents an education philosophy representative of this modern and ever changing world in which children are growing up in.
The Finnish system works by involving the following aspects and more to a child’s daily schooling;
- Daily schooling starts at 7 years old
- Less Homework
- No standardised testing in lower grades
- Teacher training
- Student involvement
Learning using the Finnish Curriculum aims to prepare students for an unknown future. An example of this is particularly relevant recently in terms of how Covid-19 has affected the world and indeed education. It is also bound to change a number of industries and future workers are going to have to adapt quickly and effectively to change.
The integrated interdisciplinary system provides personalised and purpose based learning allowing students to learn at their individual level. Where educators are more like mentors, a competency based approach to learning 21st century skills for life are employed, whilst alining with the Finnish curriculum but also globally renowned systems making the curriculum internationally relevant.
At GSE we often get messages and enquiries in regards to the Finnish Curriculum so we are excited at the prospect of bringing the Finnish Curriculum to your school.
Contact GSE to find out about how you can implement the Finnish Curriculum into your school.
