Training is part of the education. Training is organized either with a training or an apprenticeship contract. During the work period, you will demonstrate your skills in real working life. Before the start of the training period, you must have completed the vocational studies that provide the competence required in the vocational skills demonstrations.
Training is target-oriented, supervised and assessed study at the workplace and done within the normal working hours and practices of the workplace. Training is an integral part of studies. The goal is for the students to acquire the professional skills required for their degree and to learn general skills needed in the job market. The student writes a plan in cooperation with the work place for the training period. Students demonstrate their competence in vocational skills demonstrations.
Vocational skills demonstrations are planned, carried out and assessed together with employers. This offers students the opportunity to demonstrate through authentic work tasks how they have achieved the vocational skills requirements according to the Finnish National Curriculum descriptions of studies. The tasks and demonstrations of trainees differ depending on the workplace and are planned individually for each student.
