The Department of Education collaborates with various municipalities and schools around Sweden. This mainly applies to questions about in-service training of teachers, principals and study and career counselors. But we also turn to various companies and organizations where we provide contract education.


Municipalities and schools

The Department of Education collaborates with various municipalities and schools in Sweden in terms of competence development, in-service training and contract education for both teachers, principals and other school staff.

The department can offer municipalities and schools different courses with a focus on, for example, mentoring, educational leadership and professional conversations.

In order to develop the competence of principals, there is the The National School Leadership Training Programme, a state-regulated professional training programme for school heads, and people with corresponding leadership positions.

This applies to both courses and programs. The collaboration means that we can offer our students the opportunity for both breadth and depth in our educations.

We also collaborate with various universities around the world.
