Minister Reps and World Education Forum

At the world’s most important education forum the Education World Forum the success story of Estonia’s education was the main topic, said minister Mailis Reps.

The interest in Estonian education was higher than expected, Reps added. „This clearly is an obvious assurance that Estonia’s education system is a model example for other countries. This gives us great opportunity to strengthen Estonia’s positive image abroad and increase education export,“ said minister.

Reps noted that it must be thought well through how to make this kind of attention work best for the benefit of society. “This is why we have established the Education Nation brand. I believe that this will be the next Estonia’s success story,” said Reps. Minister met the managers of education activities of Apple, Amazon, Discovery and Microsoft who demonstrated great interest in Estonia’s education system as well as cooperate on implementing innovative solutions in education. “These companies have many ideas for modernizing education, and Estonia is seen as an excellent partner with whom to discuss new solutions and perhaps even test them,” noted Reps. This is an opportunity that helps to make Estonia’s education even better.

Minister Reps met her British colleague Nick Gibb to discuss bilateral cooperation between Estonia and the UK. Reps also delivered a public speech on Estonia’s education success at the Department for Education.
