Dear Colleagues

NAHT West Midlands, in association with EDUfinn, is please to offer you the opportunity to participate in a very special conference on June 10th at The Amba Hotel, Marble Arch, London to explore the Finnish Education system. Finland has for many years been considered one of the best education systems in the world and yet is very child centred offering a very broad and balanced curriculum with no inspection or mandatory testing until 18 years of age.

At a time of radical changes in our education system It will give you a chance to see an effective alternative solution to current government proposals but also ways to change teaching practice within our current or future systems.

Every national education system has its pros and cons, but we believe that learning from others will offer ideas and practices that will help you improve the teaching practices within your own school. The keynote speakers at our conference represent top specialists in the Finnish education system from kindergarten and primary schools.

We are especially privileged to have as one of our speakers, the Director General of The Finnish National Board of Education, Mr. Aulis Pitkälä. He is the person in charge of education and the national curriculum for children aged 7 -16 years. This is a rare opportunity to listen to one of the most influential people in education globally.

For only £250 you will have an opportunity to get familiar with one of the world's most successful education systems, as well as give you a chance to communicate directly with the Finnish education experts and practitioners from kindergarten and primary schools.

The cost has been set low for a conference of this stature to allow participants from a wide variety of settings and organisations to take part. It is anticipated there will be high demand so early registration is recommended to secure a place.
