Education export and educational travel

Samiedu is known as a high-quality education provider and partner in pedagogical development projects. Samiedu is a four-time winner of the National Quality Award granted by the Finnish Ministry of Education and Culture for developing good practices in vocational education and training. Its main areas of excellence are strategic management, knowledge-based management, a collegial system for personnel development and the auditing of teaching and learning processes.

One of the key strategic projects of Samiedu is the development of education export. More education export products are constantly being developed in our various fields of competence. New, modern learning environments in electronic operating platforms allow the productization of education and training and the easier mobility of education even across the globe. Location-independent learning in online environments provides opportunities for product development related to education export. The target areas of our education export are Russia, China and Southeast Asia. 

In order to develop the education export of Samiedu, the vocational college is taking part in the OVI project (ERDF, 2019–2021) for making expertise a strong export product of South Savo. The aim of the project is to develop education and export expertise into permanent models that are part of the basic tasks of organizations, and improve cooperation opportunities in South Savo.
