    This course sound interesting. I would like to know more about the duration, course material and fees.

    Thank you for your message and interest towards ALO Finland courses.

    The courses mentioned in the article are 35€ for Play, creativity, fun and active learning, and 25€ for the phenomenal learning course.

    The duration of the courses is fairly short, and can be done within hours, since I know how busy timetables all educators have. However, I’ve had learners on courses, who have spent a lot of time and effort collaborating and sharing their expertise on the discussion forum. That’s what makes learning more global and interesting.

    You can find more information about the available courses here:

    Hope to see you on the course soon!

    Best regards,

    I am really greatful that i have found this page!
    I have been interested in finnish education for several years and recently i found a finnish school which sells licences
    all over the world but it is so expensive, i could not possibly open one of those school plus, what i need is information
    and training to open a small school.

    Thank you so much!
