Finland Embarks On 4M Euro Education Project in Kosovo

Posted by | 28th August 2013 | Finland News

Finland has recently won a three year long project to enhance the standard of education in Kosovo and help introduce a new curriculum in the country. The project is lead by Omnia, The Joint Authority of Education in Espoo, and the department of Education and Cultural Services of Espoo who are bot thrilled to have been selected for this 4 million Euros project.

Together, they are expected to build up the education system in Finland via this European Union funded project, called the Twinning programme.

The main goals of the project are to strengthen the education system in Kosovo,  promote equality and increase employability rates. By improving the access and quality of education, the programme also aims to enhance the well-being of teenagers and youth.


With the help of education reforms at both municipal and national levels, the Twinning programme sets about to mark the beginning of international co-operation. An Austrian – Finnish consortium has already been selected to offer guidance and help authorities in Kosovo to achieve the reforms.

Headed by Omnia and the department of Education and Cultural Services of Espoo, the project also brings together KulturKontakt Austria and a number of Finnish actors from the education industry. On Kosovo’s part, the Education Ministry, University of Prishtina and several educational authorities are also going to help with the progress of the project.

For Omnia, this isn’t the single export education project that it has been involved with. It has also lead similar programmes in Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Zambia and Qatar.
