Key results

Throughout the project, we systematically supported teachers’ professional development – even despite the COVID-19 pandemic and the war in Ukraine.

We conducted 34 educational activities, including trainings, webinar programs, study trips to Finland, online consultations, online courses.

The key topics of our programs and courses, during which Finnish experts shared best practices and knowledge:

  • primary education pedagogy
  • inclusive education
  • assessment practices

  • planning, creating, evaluation of educational programs
  • digital tools for teachers

Our educational activities covered 2,800 educators, among whom are teachers of post-graduate pedagogical and higher education institutions, teachers, regional NUS coordinators, authors of educational programs.

Responding to the challenges caused by the war, we conducted a series of training and supervision sessions “Psychosocial support for teachers and students during wartime” and created a methodological manual. We trained 109 trainers-pedagogues from ITTI and 141 teachers and teachers trainers who received the relevant certificate.
