New learning

1 August 2016, a new curriculum was adopted in all Finnish comprehensive schools. This curriculum steers students towards becoming active players who learn through interaction with other students, teachers, and other adults as well as with other various communities. As the students’ responsibility for their own work increases, the teacher’s mentoring role increases. The number of learning environments increases as, e.g., libraries, museums and youth centres are adopted as new surroundings in addition to the classroom.

The New Curriculum


Weighted Curriculum Education

In Vantaa, we have a neighbourhood school principle, which means that each student has access, depending on where they live, to a high-quality learning environment at their neighbourhood school. All comprehensive schools in Vantaa are equally developed, and good practices are shared amongst all of the schools. However, some schools offer weighted-curriculum instruction, for which a separate admission application is required.
