Program partnership in IT training

We have renewed the way we train adults, who have a career pivot in mind, to become IT professionals. At the same time we are able to meet better the recruitment needs companies and organizations have.

Studying in our programs is full time and it takes place in Pasila, Helsinki (during corona pandemic also in distance learning) with our teachers for the first 12 months. Studying in school is followed by a training period at the workplace. The length of training period is five months.

During the training period, the hosting company gains good understanding of the skills and knowledge the student has and how the student fits into the organization culture. At best training period leads to a win-win situation: the company gets a skilled employee without extra recruitment costs and the student finds a job equal to his or hers studies.

Program partnership in practice

  • Program partners build their reputation as a desired future employer among students.
  • Business College offers partners a targeted way to recruit trainees/employees.
  • Program partners achieve visibility in applicant marketing.
  • As a program partner you can influence on the content of the training (technologies, focus areas). 
  • Partners are committed to invest their time by taking part in student project work (defining the project, presenting the project assignment to students and giving feedback to student teams after the work is done) or giving training during studies on topics which the company itself prefers.
  • Partners arrange a company presentation in class/ by MS Teams or a student excursion.
