Becoming a pupil at the Rauma Teacher Training School
Become familiar with our activities
Applying for school at Rauma Teacher Training School in first grade happens through the town of Rauma’s central application system. Pupils can enroll in either a language or skill-oriented track for grades 1-6. Pupils are also asked about secondary choices for schools.
Skill-oriented teaching emphasizes arts, skills, and active learning, and provides varying possibilities for expression. There is a wider variety of subjects in skill-oriented teaching compared with language-oriented teaching.
Language-oriented teaching refers to large scale bilingual teaching using English as the target language. The foreign language is used in such a way that it does not endanger pupils’ learning in Finnish. It should be noted that this A1 English requires 1 more hour per week than in the skill-oriented teaching.
If a pupil wishes to join the school after the first grade, please contact the Principal of Basic Education, Juha Ståhlberg, regarding availability.
