Finland has one of the most stringent faculty standards and one of the most comprehensive teacher training systems in the world. Finnish teachers are “research-oriented” and those teaching in basic and general upper secondary education are required to hold at least a master's degree. Versed in educational sciences and have educational research skills, teachers must also be proficient in the daily application of these skills and continue to actively explore educational teaching methods.
The only task of the Finnish teacher training system is to nurture competent teachers and develop the necessary professional qualities to ensure that their career continues to progress. In other words, teachers in Finland must have the ability and willingness to learn for life. The Finnish education sector advocates the ability to learn so education can continue to innovate and improve.
High standards are the driving force for teacher training. In Finland, teachers, like doctors, must constantly study and improve their knowledge. Teachers must implement lifelong education, and the law also stipulates that Finnish teachers must have three full days of off-the-job training per school year. Finnish universities, municipalities, teachers' associations, and private faculties also employ a variety of methods to provide training services for in-service teachers. At the same time, the school and the government are also actively responsible, including paying for expensive substitute teachers, so in-service teachers can participate in training.
