Finland leads in educating for the future
The Worldwide Educating for the Future Index (WEFFI) has placed Finland on top of its 2018 ranking, which measures how countries equip their youth with future-oriented skills and prepare them for tomorrow’s working life. The study analysed young people aged 15 to 24 in 50 economies around the world. The findings were categorised across three tiers – policy, teaching and socio-economic – and shed light on how well countries are gearing up their youth for a more interconnected world. Finland’s phenomenon-based learning was recognised as a key innovation. Other specific strengths in Finland include teacher quality and the use of digital technology in classrooms. However, the study does call for improvement in the Finnish teaching environment, stating that Finland is lacking a national framework for teacher evaluation.
