Non-formal education

Non - formal education

After school, pupils can select various non-formal education activities and these are provided in general education schools. Most of these activities are free of charge or paid from the pupil’s education voucher.

Pupils can also attend classes at various non-formal education schools, such as sports, music, fine arts or art schools, leisure centres or children’s clubs. Classes are partially subsidised and fees are determined by the owner (founder) of the school.

In 2013, four municipalities have been testing a new financing method of non-formal education through the principle of the pupil’s education voucher. At the end of the project, recommendations will be prepared as to the use of this principle or elements of it in all municipalities.
