The Jyväskylä Educational Consortium offers its students and personnel a number of different ways to gain international experience. We cooperate with a wide network of partner institutions and companies, mainly in Europe, but also in Africa, India, Canada, China and Russia.
The partnerships are based on common interest in developing curricula, pedagogical methods, teachers’ new role and ICT skills, to name a few. In vocational colleges, the main focus lies now on sharing and developing the ECVET system to improve the students’ employment opportunities worldwide. The general upper secondary schools share student and staff mobilities within the partner network in order to strengthen intercultural communication and working skills.
