Municipal level: Bringing the solution-focused approach into the curriculum

For the training to be ongoing and and for the approach to become an established practice in schools, it needs to be part of the local curriculum and the municipality’s strategy.

Case Lappeenranta:

The decision to make the solution-focused approach a part of the municipality’s curriculum was made about 5-6 years after starting systematic training. A working committee prepared the proposal and heard staff on the matter. After this, the committee submitted its proposal to the board, which decided to incorporate the solution-focused approach into the municipal strategy and curriculum.
