Facts Express 3C/2019: Why would I go abroad for in-service training?
Through the Erasmus+ -program for school education, primary and secondary schools can get funding for projects in which they can send staff to participate in learning mobilities in other European countries. The goal of the in-service training abroad is to affect not only the professional development of an individual staff member, but also the entire institution.
This study is based on a previous, international study, which looked at how the project goals were met in the in-service training projects for school education, and how the impact of the projects was perceived in the school community. We also looked at what kinds of factors either support or hinder the sustainability of the results. This Facts Express –publication presents some of the qualitative results of the Finnish part of the longitudinal study.
