Finnish National Agency for Education EDUFI

The Finnish National Agency for Education is a development agency operating under the Ministry of Education and Culture. We are responsible for developing education and lifelong learning as well as promoting internationalisation. The agency started its operations at the beginning of 2017 and continues the work formerly carried out by the Finnish National Board of Education and the Centre for International Mobility CIMO.

In total, some 370 people work at the Finnish National Agency for Education. The agency also employs about twenty teachers of Finnish language and culture working at universities across the world and about thirty teachers working in the European Schools. In addition, six state-owned educational institutions operate under the agency. Our employees typically work in expert positions and have a higher education degree, most commonly in education, humanities or social sciences.

The Finnish National Agency for Education draws up the national core curricula for general education and early childhood education and care, and the requirements for vocational qualifications. We develop education through various projects and anticipate competence and education needs. We also provide services for the implementation of student admissions, administrate language proficiency tests and organise continuing education for teachers.

We implement programmes and agreements promoting internationalisation and offer advisory services related to internationalisation. We are also responsible for the recognition of studies completed abroad.

We provide information to support development and decision-making in the education sector and produce statistics on education and internationalisation. 

Our premises are conveniently located in Hakaniemi in Helsinki and our personnel enjoy their work. Our tasks are meaningful and involve a lot of responsibility. As an employer, our agency invests in the well-being and professional development of its personnel in many ways.
