As outlined in Chapter 10 of the National Core Curriculum, JULIET also addresses smaller scale forms of bilingual education, such as language enrichment and language showering, as well as more extensive forms of bilingual education including Bilingual Education and CLIL. Two recent additions to the JULIET programme include Issues in International and Intercultural Education preparing teachers for working within and beyond Finnish education, and a course Language in Learning Environments which addresses the linguistic, social as well as material environments of language education.
