Cultures are different -
the mission to educate is the same"

In OPITCO we know that all the countries are different. It is impossible to take a model that has been created in one cultural context and transfer it directly to the other context. However, we believe that the Finnish tradition regarding educational practices can serve as an excellent baseline in the school development in other countries as well.

We also know that people living in different cultures have much to learn from each other. We are happy to provide our expertise to our colleagues in other countries and also interested to hear and see, what we could learn from you.
