Pioneering Finnish education expertise globally

We believe that everyone deserves the best possible education and future – that’s why we deliver Finnish educational expertise worldwide.

The Finnish education concept is internationally acclaimed for its impressive track record in producing high-ranking student performance, while nurturing well-being for individuals and communities.

The ECF approach takes this concept, reinventing it for contexts and cultures worldwide. We build a sustainable education model with you, because we believe in learning for life.

A learning community built with Finnish know-how and the ECF approach creates the foundation for a holistic learning experience. We have co-created schools and trained teachers around the world. With us, learners study for life, not school.

We continuously develop our know-how in close cooperation with our owner organisations, the University of Jyväskylä, JAMK University of Applied Sciences, and Jyväskylä Educational Consortium Gradia.

The University of Jyväskylä is an international centre of excellence, home to PISA, TIMSS, PIRLS, PIAAC and other significant worldwide benchmark surveys. In the field of Education, it is positioned among the world’s top 100 in the 2018 THE World University rankings, and in the top 150 of the 2018 QS World University Rankings.

JAMK University of Applied Sciences is an established entrepreneurship-oriented higher education institution specialising in eight key competence fields and Vocational Teacher Education.

Jyväskylä Educational Consortium Gradia is a forerunner in international Finnish accredited vocational qualification programmes and a large-scale provider of general and vocational upper secondary education.
