VisitEDUestonia arranges teacher visits to Estonia. We can offer you and your staff a unique opportunity to learn from the underrated Estonian education system. You will see everyday life in Estonian schools and shadow local teachers to see how ideas could be integrated into your classroom at a practical level.


Visitors can choose kindergartens, primary schools or secondary schools -and within all of these variations of special education. The area for the visits is located in the Tallinn metropolitan area.

We recommend a group of two people from one school, so the experiences can be shared and reflected upon during your visit. This may enhance more effective implementation at your own school. We cannot guarantee that a group of three people (or larger) is able to visit the same school. However, all people in a group can stay in the same city during the visit.

We would suggest you give yourself plenty of time to enjoy the wonderful experiences and cultural opportunities Estonia has to offer before or after your visit. 

Teacher Shadowing is a customized program so you can choose the dates and the length that is the most convenient for you. However, considering the Estonian schools year and the holidays, Teacher Shadowing is only available between September 15th – December 15th and January 15th – May 15th.
