At Finnish School of Kosovo, students are seen as unique whose individual strengths are nurtured. Educational guidance by the teachers is seen as essential aiming to support and guide all students so that they can all perform as well as possible and make correct and appropriate decisions concerning their education and careers.

Our goal is to ensure the necessary knowledge and skills as well as to encourage learning

Finnish School of Kosovo uses the world-renowned Finnish Curriculum at its core, supported by only the most advanced learning methods and our state-of-the-art, innovative campus facilities. By implementing the Finnish-inspired curriculum at our school, we aim at ensuring that the knowledge and skills of local and international children and youth will be in the future, both in national contexts as well as international.

Some of the key goals include enhancing pupil participation, increasing the meaningfulness of study and making it possible for each and every pupil to experience success. Children and teenagers are guided in assuming more responsibility for their schoolwork, but, in accordance with this, also given more support in their studies.

The pupils set goals, solve problems and assess their learning based on set targets. The pupils’ experiences, feelings, areas of interest and interaction with others lay the foundation for learning. The teacher’s task is to instruct and guide the pupils into becoming lifelong learners, by taking the individual learning approaches of each pupil into consideration.

Transversal competences developed in all subjects

The curriculum places an emphasis on transversal competences in the instruction of subjects. These competences are based on different perspectives. Study, working life and active citizenship require a command of different knowledge and skills as well as competences in combining these. Each subject promotes transversal competence skills. The aims set for transversal competences include thinking and learning-to-learn, interaction and expression skills, and multi literacy, which is the ability to produce and interpret variety of different texts.

Transversal competences also include managing daily life and taking care of oneself. Other aims of transversal competences are cultural competence, interaction and self-expression, ICT competence, working life competence and entrepreneurship as well as participation, involvement and building a sustainable future.
