Hanna Kindstedt

Hanna Kindstedt works as an assistant at the Unit of Education and Early Childhood Education and Care in Swedish of the Finnish National Agency for Education. She has a Master's Degree in Political Sciences.

”My work as an assistant includes assisting tasks related to the reform of the national core curriculum and the government aid process. I am in charge of making arrangements for events, updating our website, making travel arrangements as well as the unit's finances together with the executive secretary.

When I started working at the Finnish National Agency for Education, I was encouraged to familiarise myself with the agency's tasks and read different publications right at the beginning as there would probably not be as much time for this later. That was a good tip and only reinforced my interest in working with these issues.

While everyone has their assigned duties at my unit, our cooperation is going smoothly. I have also had a chance to collaborate with other units, which has been nice. The best thing about our agency is its openness and working together for a good cause.”
