Education and Culture Services, City of Oulu offers EDUpacks as technical visits for school staff and education administrators. The provision contains packs at schools and at day care centres.
The visits are mainly targeted to education administrators, supervisors/inspectors, researchers, head teachers, heads of day care units, teachers and other staff members at schools, day care units and education development centres and organisations.
The visitors to day care centres and schools in Oulu get to know some of the best practices of the local implementation of the Finnish core curricula. They can interact with local directors/principals, teachers, children and young people. A presentation on childcare and/or education is followed by a tour in the early education groups and/or school classes. The visitors can observe some of the daily activities during the tour, ie. the staff, children and young people in action!
The aim of the EDUpack visits is to show some of the special features of the particular day care centres and schools in Oulu and to discuss them. The special features for each day care centre and school are described on our website. Have a look!
There is a trend towards designing multi-functional buildings that are centres for education, leisure and cultural activities. The concept is unique and we welcome visitors to find out more about it during a EDUpack visit.
EDUpack JRs are educational visits for children and young people. The EDUpackJRs can be organized partly at local schools but the main emphasis is in the cultural content. EDUexperiences are ready-made programmes for 5-10 days for either young people or adults. The programme always has a coherent thematic content and it is carried out with a hands-on approach.
You are warmly welcome to visit us!
