Avain ammattiin – "Skills to Profession"
The main objective is to guide, motivate and help students in finding their individual pathway to vocational studies and towards a working life. To support this process, Finnish language skills, vocational technical vocabulary, and skills needed in life management, studying and job search are strengthened and developed in a way that suits each student’s personal goals and future plans.
Arjen eväät – "Everyday Skills"
The aim is to improve social skills, and develop and learn other skills that help each student to live a life that is as independent and fulfilling as possible. The education is rehabilitating, preparatory for possible vocational training, and designed to strengthen general knowledge and abilities. Students’ personal needs, wishes and goals are considered carefully.
