Tour Program (For April 2020 tour program is different, please refer the link https://www.ccefinland.org/7th-symposium)
Finland and CCE do not claim to show the best teachers, best schools or best teaching methods in this program, as in Finland, there is no selective approach. Education is learner-centered. The teachers do their best to make learning better. You will get to see what is actually happening in the classroom. We can not guarantee a school visit to a particular school as it is the school's decision if they want to take any visitors on a particular day.
The detailed schedule with time and options for school visits will be declared two weeks prior to the tour and will be sent to the confirmed registered participants.
CCE reserves the right to change the program depending on the batch size of the participants.
Before making the payment, kindly fill the registration form. Filling up a registration form is the first mandatory step to reserve your seat for the tour.
