KOULU Group starting teacher training in Pakistan

We are very happy to announce that KOULU Group signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Pakistani UMT University of Management and Technology in the Nordic-Pakistan Business Summit held in Helsinki in the beginning of 2017. The cooperation consists of improving teacher training and jointly setting up a teacher training institution in Pakistan. In addition, the collaboration aims in joint operations in the private schooling sector by offering a blend of Finnish and Pakistani curriculum. New digital technologies are developed to support the joint development work on the schooling system.

The Memorandum of Understanding marks the start of a long journey ahead between representatives from Finland and Pakistan that we strongly believe each party will benefit the other with its own strengths in this long-term cooperation. We will try our best to create the best outcomes for both sides.

University of Management and Technology is the leading university in Punjab, the biggest province of Pakistan. They have several departments, including teacher training, with over 11,000 students.

KOULU Education Group is an expert organisation that provides first-class and comprehensive education solutions for learning and development, based on the best educational expertise from Finland.
