IT Education

Update: As of the 1st of August 2020, all the activities of the Information Technology Foundation for Education were transferred to a new state authority called the Education and Youth Board (Haridus- ja Noorteamet). The new board is directly subordinate to the Ministry of Education and Research.

The Information Technology Foundation for Education (HITSA) contributes to the development of a national education system in line with the needs and opportunities in the field of ICT. Our activities are targeted at all four educational levels - preschool, general, vocational and higher education. 

Through different educational programmes, we offer know-how and support for educational institutions on how to integrate technological means with study processes so learners obtain necessary digital skills for succeeding in society.

We implement a system of grants for supporting the studies of IT students.
