The course has been created for school management, administrators, pre-school, elementary/primary, secondary school teachers; staff of institutions involved in education who want to have an inside look to Estonia’s school system through school visits and understand what are the reasons behind the PISA success.

What is a PISA (Program for International Student Assessment) test? – The international rankings compare the performance of 15-year-olds in reading, math, and science across 79 countries and economies, including the 36 OECD member states. The rankings take place every three years.

The last results came out in December 2019 (the tests were made in 2018). Estonia’s overall aggregate score made it the highest placed European country and putting it in fifth place in the league table.

This course is of significant benefit to education professionals who:

  • Want to learn how Estonia’s educational system works.
  • Wish to contribute to discussion with a ‘success story’ of your own school.
  • Want to interact with colleagues of the same school level from around Europe.

Courses include expert presentations and workshops during school visits on how Estonia – the Nation of Education has achieved the miracle results at PISA tests.
