Education and Youth Board
Haridus- ja Noorteamet (Harno)

UNEVOC Centre (National Body) since 2002

The Education and Youth Board (Harno) is a government agency of the Ministry of Education and Research that deals with the implementation of Estonian education and youth policy. Our goal is to offer Estonian people high-quality, modern, and equally accessible educational opportunities. We want everyone to be able to create a personal learning path for their entire life cycle!


Mission

We find out every student’s abilities, we support their development, and we help them implement their knowledge and skills into society.



Objectives

We work every day in the name that Estonian education will be more individualized, will consider each student’s abilities and provide students with (constructive) feedback on their development. We are leaders and creators of innovative educational solutions that support teaching and learning.

Main Goals 2019-2023:

  • Seamless personal education
  • Skills for the future
  • A sustainable, effective and motivated organization with employees

Regular tasks

  • Create integration opportunities for non-Estonian-speaking population and support relevant integration processes
  • Prepare, coordinate and implement projects in the area of lifelong learning and languages

  • Organize other activities necessary for achieving the objectives of the Harno
  • Offer free educational counselling services for parents, teachers and other educators of young people between the ages of 1.5 and 18.Educational counselling is a service in which a child’s learning or behavioral issues are identified and ways to support the child’s development are provided. Rajaleidja centers employ speech therapists, psychologists, social pedagogues and special educational teachers.
  • Support the development of vocational and higher education in meeting labor market needs (the PRÕM project). For example, we are working on the development and implementation of the internship and work-based learning programmes and offer opportunities for additional language learning.
