Finland's world-class teacher training is available to Malaysian educators
By: HEI Schools
Professor Lipponen, a co-founder of HEI Schools and professor at the University of Helsinki, commented, "I have had the privilege to lecture and connect with many early education professionals and academics in Southeast Asia, and I have seen first-hand the growing interest in Finnish early education in Malaysia. The cooperation between HEI Schools and SEGi University in raising a new generation of teachers in Malaysia is a great opportunity for growth on both sides, and I look forward to seeing where this partnership will lead."
This is the first partnership SEGi has entered into with a Finnish education concept, and SEGi has been recognized as a premier leader in early childhood teacher training, championing professionalism in the early childhood industry since 1999. In 2011, the Malaysian government appointed to champion the improvement of the nation's preschool teachers under the Economic Transformation Plan (ETP).
"We see this collaboration as part of our ongoing efforts to strive for educational excellence,"
Milla Kokko, Co-Founder and CEO of HEI Schools, also commented: "At HEI Schools, our mission is to bring high-quality education to as many children and families in the world as possible. With this partnership, we will get much closer to achieving that goal and we cannot wait to get started."
Students will start enrolling in the online program in June 2021, and the two companies look forward to a fruitful collaboration for years to come.
