Today and tomorrow, Deputy Secretary Generals Ivar Sikk and Mikk Kasesalk are in Copenhagen, Denmark to discuss with their Danish counterparts cooperation between both countries as well share experiences and best practices on shaping education policy.

According to Ivar Sikk, there is much to learn from reforms in education that have taken place in Denmark over past few years. “Denmark has thorough experience in conducting reforms and implementing strategies in education and research. I hope these two days in Denmark provide knowledge that helps to avoid obstacles Danes encountered while putting together the Strategy for Education and Research 2021-2035 of Estonia,” Sikk added.

In addition to meetings in the ministries of education, higher education and research, the school for students with special education need will be visited together with youth center and Independent Research Fund Denmark.

Deputy Secretary Generals belong to the delegation consisting of the heads of departments of the Estonia’s Ministry of Education and Research as well heads of Estonian Language Institute, Estonian Centre for Youth Work, Foundation for Education Information Techology, Estonian Qualifications Authority and Foundation Innove.
