Ensuring the quality of curricula
The curricula of Tallinn Folk High School are prepared in accordance with the requirements set out in the Continuing Education Standard.
The curricula are published on the institution’s website alongside a brief introduction to trainings.
Ensuring the quality of training providers
The training providers of Tallinn Folk High School have professional training or work experience and/or training experience in the field they teach. Information about the education and work experience of each training provider is published on the institution’s website with the corresponding curriculum.
Our training providers preferably are adult educators or have experience in adult training.
The quality of work of the training providers is assessed based on the learners’ feedback. The feedback is shared with the training provider and if necessary, changes are made in future training activities.
Ensuring the quality of the learning environment
The courses of Tallinn Folk High School take place in three study buildings, where the classrooms have been adapted for continuing education and hobby activities for adults.
The classrooms have been designed and furnished according to the purpose and content of trainings. All the necessary resources are available: removable furniture, presentation equipment, kitchen equipment and utensils in the school kitchen, computers with necessary programs in the computer class, etc.
Students can use the internet.
Sometimes trainings are organised outside of our premises. In this case, we will ensure compliance with conditions required for educational activities.
Training providers and learners are asked for feedback, which is considered when designing the learning environment.
During training, oral feedback is collected from the learners and training providers, based on which required changes are made to ensure high-quality trainings.
At the end of a training, the learners are asked for written feedback, which, depending on the training, is provided on paper during the last meeting, or electronically. The feedback includes questions that relate to the content of the training, the training provider, the learning environment, and the organisation of the training. The feedback is shared with the training provider, analysed, and if necessary, changes are introduced in future trainings.
