Dr. Raimo S.



PhD in education from the University of Oulu, Finland. PhD studies were related to teachers' professional competence development. My passion in working life is three-fold: 1) offer trainings for professionals, 2) do research and utilise theories in practice and 3) manage development projects in diverse contexts. Solid project management skills: I have been a Project Manager in several national and international projects including partners from Finland and other countries. Founder and director of the company Finland School of Education which offers training courses and consultation to education professionals and teacher students. FSoE is specialised in developing teachers' professional competence in school communities where students represent various cultures and backgrounds. Education Export - practical experience since 2006: My professional background with local, national and international project management has given me hands-on experience about different education systems. I have given lectures in more than 10 countries about the Finnish pedagogical policies and practices. It has been a pleasure to get opportunities to visit e.g. in the UK, Austria, Switzerland, Namibia, Romania, Poland, Indonesia, Thailand, the Netherlands and Belgium. During October 2015 – April 2016 I have spent five months in Thailand giving training and workshops and increasing my knowledge about the local needs and working culture in schools. Developing education and curricula in the Ministry of Education in Namibia as Technical Advisor for two years (1999-2001) gave me the insight how to give nationwide input into education.
