Vocational qualifications and country of origin training for groups

Degree-oriented training is offered as group training on demand. Group training is a fee-based training business where students are recruited and selected in close cooperation with a partner in the country of origin. The training packages are tailored to the specific commission and may include both vocational and language training in the country of origin and in Finland, both online and face-to-face. To support the students’ employment, employers and working life co-operation play an important role in the training process.

In the context of labour migration, we also carry out skills assessments tailored to the needs of Finnish employers, as well as training in the country of origin.

Training exports are particularly targeted at sectors with labour shortages, such as social and health services, catering, metalworking and cleaning services.

Tailormade Education Programmes for Teachers and Educational Institutions

For countries aiming to enhance the performance of their education systems, we offer expertise to evaluate current performance and to design and execute development- and training programmes. In addition to development of vocational education curricula we offer development programmes to adopt and enhance the use of digital learning environments as well as quality management of educational institutions.
