OPPORTUNITY: Peer-Learning Visit to Finland for Professionals Working with Young People

Tuesday, 17 September – Saturday, 21 September

(4 nights)

After popular and successful study visits in 2017 & 2018, Children in Scotland are delighted to announce a further visit to Helsinki to learn about education, society and life in Finland from a variety of organisations and professionals in the sector.

Background information:

Scandinavian countries have long been a focus for Scotland and other UK nations, held in high esteem for their approach to – and successes in – education and childcare. Most recently, Finland has emerged as a leader on the world stage, ranking in the top ten in a recent OECD study of education systems.

This study trip will focus on sharing best practice in education and learning, as well as covering other fascinating projects, policies and interventions that support children and young people in their everyday lives.

Who is it for?

Delegates are welcome from across sectors and disciplines, and the study visit is open to anyone working with children and young people.

Cost to attend:

£1250 for Children in Scotland members; £1350 for non-members. Flexible payment plans are available.

The cost includes: return flights, four nights’ accommodation (private room with en suite), airport transfers, travel in and around Helsinki via public transport, Children in Scotland staff members to accompany the group, as well as speaker fees and visits to organisations.

What did delegates from previous Study Visits say?

“The overall impact of the study visit was quite cumulative - all the visits together provided a comprehensive picture of the Finnish education system and some areas of social/community care.” - Finland study visit delegate, October 2018

“I would encourage anyone involved in Children’s Services to go on this study visit and take learning back to their respective areas of work. This has been a fantastic learning experience which was coordinated with precision.” - Finland study visit delegate, October 2018
