Support – Coaching Support & Special Education

Absolutely everyone who passed through school needed the support system at a certain point in their student life… ( School Principal, Vantaa)

The program is built around the support & special education system in Finland. 

In the center, rests the idea to be present and catch as soon as possible the moment when support education is needed, this will create greater impact and ensure that there is an equal opportunity to learning (the right to education to all children). 

In the diagram shown you can see the 3 levels of support- for level 3 (basic one) 1 in 2 students will get some particular measure & intervention.

This is a an Action Based learning course, in which we apply the U lab model for transformative learning (MIT) build up dialogue & sustainable cooperation.

Participants will receive a Certificate from EUNEOS OY Finland.
