EduExcellence, a Finnish global education service provider, and Forge Foundation, a non-profit organization have agreed to collaborate on expert consultancy to audit and certify training programmes for young adults in Latin America.

The goal of the development programme is to enrich current training programmes to empower youth in gaining access to quality jobs. Forge has been studying the best practices and knowledge in Finnish education, so that it can be applied to their programmes in Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, Peru and Mexico.

 - In Finland, equality is the cornerstone of our education system. Therefore, our training and education models are designed to empower people to develop adequate ‘soft skills’ that will help them gain access to the labour market, says Tuija Pulkkinen, CEO of EduExcellence.

- As a provider of Finnish higher education expertise, we are delighted to partner with a highly recognized and novel organization, thus helping to create life-improving opportunities for many people in Latin America.

EduExcellence Ltd. is a global education service provider of three major universities of applied sciences (Haaga-Helia, Laurea, Metropolia) in the Helsinki Metropolitan area in Finland.
