About Polar Partners

Polar Partners accelerates the world’s transition towards 21st century education – one person, one school and one society at a time. Our team consists of top educational experts with strong experience in education and international business.

Your leading partner for setting up the world’s best schools

While the world of education will not change in one day, our mission keeps inspiring us to move forward alongside like-minded clients around the world. We are committed to bringing together the best Finnish and local experts to co-create educational practices that work in the local context.

Years of innovation, development and testing have led us to deliver a proven modular school concept based on Finnish education, where every function of a world-class school has been thought through. Our focus is to help our clients to create the best K-12 school for their needs, based on quality education. Our first K-12 Finnish International School opened in Georgia in 2019 and the number keeps growing.

Partnership with sustainable practices

Schools will operate for decades and they need to be developed continuously. We believe in long-term business relationships with a mutual commitment to high-quality education. We are always open to new ideas for collaboration which benefit and inspire both of us.

In our projects we are flexible and work in close collaboration between our experts, a wide network of trusted Finnish partners, educational authorities and our client’s team. This guarantees a smooth and well-structured process all the way from design to implementation and development. Polar Partner follows the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development goals set by the United Nations. All business practices are aligned with Finnish and international laws and anti-corruption policies.

Team with strong experience

Our team is experienced in education development and shares a passion for creating a brighter future for children through top-notch education and lifelong learning. We have experience in working as teachers in Finland, teacher trainers for international groups, principals of vocational institutions, project managers in international education development projects and as educational public speakers.

We have strong experience in consulting, regarding both vocational education and training as well as the general secondary education reforms in Finland in recent years. In recognition of our work for the Finnish education system, we are part of the Finnish National Agency for Education and Education Finland’s national committees. Other positions of responsibility include Chairman of Education Finland export program’s K-12 education steering committee, and membership of the Finnish Vocational Education and Training (VET) export steering committee.
