OES And EduCluster Finland Cooperates To Set Up Finland Private School

HALBAN – Oman Educational Services (LLC) is well on its way to establishing itself as an education eco-system with a new target of setting up a ‘Finland Private School’ based on Finnish education best practices. OES (LLC) is the owner company of the German University of Technology in Oman (GUtech), the Convention and Exhibition Centre for Islamic Science & Civilizations and Mahara Research Centre.

OES is partnering with EduCluster Finland (ECF), a pioneer education expert organisation owned by the University of Jyväskylä; the leading university in education research and innovation in Finland. EduCluster has extensive international experience. It is behind the establishment and the operation of the Qatar-Finland International School.

ECF has achieved a recognisable milestone in GCC, in particular in Qatar, where Qatar-Finland International School is flourishing after merely one year of operation. This success is attributed to the great reputation of the Finnish education system worldwide. The Finnish education system enjoys high rankings and is well perceived by policy makers, educators and parents.

“It is promising and exciting to embark on establishing a private school that applies the Finnish education practices here in Oman. This is a milestone, not a destination. Educational cooperation between OES and ECF will go beyond spreading knowledge among educators and teachers in Oman” said Dr. Hussain Al Salmi – Chief Executive Officer, OES.

The Finnish education practices prepare learners for life. Teachers are equipped to educate all kids. This is very important, no kids should be left behind. Teachers deploy all necessary measures to bring kids up to and sustain them at mainstream levels.

OES and ECF have September 2018 as a target date to open their doors for the first intake of pupils into Finland Oman School. This reasonable timeframe is shared and considerable plans are shaping up to ensure a smooth process of setting up the school campus in Halban.

OES and ECF representatives inked an agreement that paves the ground for the first school in Oman offering pre-school, primary and secondary education on the basis of Finnish education practices.
