We organise upper secondary vocational education for young people and adults, making an important contribution to economic life and vocational competence in the Kainuu region. We operate on a nationwide basis and are active in international projects.
At Kainuu Vocational College, internationality is evident in nearly all our operational methods and connections.
Every year, approximately 70 Kainuu Vocational College students study or learn on-the-job at one of our partner institutes, located primarily in EU countries but with some partners outside Europe. Studies abroad are mainly funded by the EU’s Leonardo Lifelong Learning Programme, although Kainuu Vocational College’s own funds are also used to support international mobility.
Teachers and other staff members can also develop their professional skills and their ability to work in an increasingly international environment by spending time abroad.
Kainuu Vocational College is involved in several international development projects that support our strategy. We cooperate with foreign partners to develop tuition, learning environments, curricula, and evaluation in institutes for vocational training.
Kainuu Vocational College is involved in the Leonardo, Grundtvig, and Comenius Lifelong Learning partnership programmes, which are small-scale international cooperation projects. Through these programmes we can learn about the vocational training in other countries, compare practices, and continuously improve our operations.
Sinikka from Kainuu Vocational College and Tatianna and Kiersten from Alberta, Grande Prairie Composite High School work together in a project.
