The Teams of Experts
We work in six groups and in these groups are experts in their own fields.
The development of teaching curricula and the versatile support of the pupil are central tasks of the school. The teacher training school network also acts as an active developer network in the curriculum. The aim of the FTTS Curriculum Group is to actively participate in the development of a new curriculum at local and national level in close cooperation with the National Board of Education.
Research, experimentation and development is one of the basic tasks of training schools, consisting of scientific pedagogical research in close cooperation with the university and experimental and development work in schools.
Training Schools are expert and pioneering communities for the extensive pedagogical utilization of information and communication technology in teaching, research, experimentation and development. Teacher Training schools work not only pedagogy wise but are also the forerunners in the use of teaching technology.
The Group of Instructional Training designs and implements training for the needs of school network teachers.
The Teacher Training Schools of Finland are part of the global UNESCO ASPnet school network, which aims to promote intercultural interaction, peace, a sustainable future and quality in education. The ASPNet is a large and unique global network of schools committed to promote the principles and values of UNESCO through innovative teaching and learning methods at the school level and linking millions of teachers and students across the world.
A student council is a group of student leaders who work with an adult advisor to collaborate with others to impact their school community. The aim of the pupil and student council activities is to give every pupil or student the opportunity to influence decision-making at school, to participate in the operation and development of the school, and to express their opinions on matters related to the pupils. Through projects and activities, student councils work to promote citizenship, scholarship, leadership, human relations and cultural values.
