The Teacher Education Program in English commenced in the Helia School of Teacher Education (currently HAAGA-HELIA) in 2004 due to great demand. Student teachers from the first three intake groups took part in Niina Manninen’s study by evaluating the program. The evaluation took the form of open-end interviews in small groups. As a result, student “voices” were heard and their perspectives were taken into account. The student teachers were guided in their studies by Principal Lecturers, Leena Härkäpää and Riitta Larna, who give their account in the epilogue of what it is like to give guidance counseling in a foreign language to a highly educated, multicultural group, along with their recommendations for developing the program in the future.
