Current educational systems around the world are based on the principles of mass production – they are standardized, prescribed, teacher-controlled, and students are separated by age. We need a new approach to education – one that prepares students for an unknown future.
“The current model of education is outdated. We need to rethink the way we teach and inspire young people and anticipate the skills they’ll need in the future.”
– Sir Richard Branson

“Only by changing education can our children compete with machines. We need to move away from teaching knowledge to teaching something unique that machines won’t master: soft skills such as teamwork, strategic thinking, empathy, and more.”
– Jack Ma

The Nordic Baccalaureate curriculum
Based on the Finnish curriculum and enhanced with best pedagogical practices from around the world, making it internationally relevant. Students follow the interdisciplinary educational journey from pre-K to grade 12.
We upskill local teachers to teach ‘the Finnish way’ with confidence and autonomy in the classroom. We also focus on teacher and parent training to support the mindset change.
Providing numerous advantages over traditional education: narrowing achievement gaps, increasing flexibility to teach using different methods and tools, promoting mastery, allowing for a wider range of formative assessment and feedback, and personalizing learning to empower students.
Evidence of learning
Students learn in different ways. Our students are encouraged and supported to learn and share their learning in various ways be it, videos, art, crafts, dance, writing, etc. Their individual progress is tracked along our learning continuum, allowing students to shape their future through a deep awareness of their strengths, interests, and challenges.
Our technology platform facilitates the delivery of the Nordic Baccalaureate to ensure personalized and purpose-based learning. It coordinates the planning, teaching, learning, tracking, assessing, reporting and communication processes of schools and provides a unique insight into how children learn and how learning is continuously improved.
