The S.A.M.I. Project

As principal of Kielo International School in Helsinki, Finland I have students and staff from 14 countries. Although the Finnish educational system is great, it is built for the Finnish society. In order to meet the needs of my global students and their families we have partnered with Valley Training and Consultancy since 2018. The positive impact was intimidamediate. The training for my staff and myself has been given on location and online regularly. My students and their parents have a great connection with the Valley Training team. We have grown into a large family. That is exactly what my students need, especially those with learning difficulties. The level of attention and care from Valley Training is beyond any other student welfare program I have seen in Finland or globally.”

“Richard has boosted my confidence which in turn has given me great insight into developing my skill as a Linedancer. He offers support when needed and helps the individual/company realise their ideas in their own field bringing a fresh outlook to any business.”
