Personal supportEvery fourth student in Finland needs personal support from teachers. On average, they receive it two to three times a week. Each child is considered individually.
This principle is also applied in ROBBO CLUB. Students can always receive individual consultations from teachers and better understand specific topics. We also offer the opportunity to sign up for individual lessons with a teacher for a deeper study of a topic or project development. This helps each student to develop at their own pace and receive support in achieving their goals.Uniform opportunities for learning and receiving high-quality education
are one of the main principles of the Finnish education system.In Finland, it is believed that the educational environment should motivate innovation, create space for creativity, and give everyone the opportunity to "shine". Quality and equal education in Finland contributes to sustainable economic growth and the prosperity of the country.The unified methodological basis of ROBBO
, which all teachers receive in all clubs around the world, allows for the transmission of uniform high-quality knowledge in any city and in each ROBBO CLUB. Thus, ROBBO implements the principle of accessibility of knowledge and learning opportunities inherent in the Finnish education system. There is no entrance test in ROBBO CLUB, anyone who wishes to learn can join.Strong teachers
, experience and education, love for students and their work, and a decent salary.
We have previously written about the system of selecting and motivating teachers in an article
. Our teachers love what they do, are motivated to prepare engineers of the future from children of the present, and are inspired by the company's mission.If it's a "project," then it means together.
Project activities and STEM approaches
are encouraged and actively used in ROBBO CLUB. Together with a mentor, students plan, implement, and discuss the results of their joint work or project. We also have a practice of assisting older students to teach younger students during classes. This approach is not used in all clubs, but only in very cohesive groups around the mentor. However, it shows excellent results in involving older students in mentoring activities.Everyone is praised and encouraged. There are no "bad" students.
According to teachers, the main thing is to "motivate, not force them to study." In Finnish elementary schools, grades are canceled. Once a month, the curator sends parents a purple sheet that reflects the student's progress. Students do not have diaries.
In ROBBO CLUB, there are also no grades or ratings
. At the end of each study module, there is a quiz that students can take with the teacher on the last lesson of the module. Those students who have passed all the quizzes
receive a diploma from the main ROBBO company at the end of the school year, signed by the director and methodologist of the company.
We also implement this principle through a competency ladder, with a different approach to teaching for each age group
For example, with preschoolers, we play with technology, younger schoolchildren learn about technology, and middle and high school students learn to copy and create their own unique devices.
