Cooperation projects


Korko – Value for Academics – creating opportunities is a joint development project of the Cities of Helsinki, Espoo and Vantaa, which organises services to help connect academically educated job seekers aged over 35 with recruiting companies. Skilled professionals and the needs of the companies are brought together to provide employment for academics.
 Job seekers participating in the Korko project join the group of skilled professionals in the Korko Competence Pool, where business coordinators look for skilled professionals for their companies’ needs. The Korko Peer Group offers support in recognising changes in working life and finding new perspectives. The customer can also participate in the Korko Competence Analysis, which will help them identify their individual competences. The project is managed by Espoo.

The main target groups of the project are the following:

  • final-stage students in vocational education or the newly graduated who are in danger of becoming unemployed after their studies
  • unemployed people who need support with employment and skills development, who may include young people, the long-term unemployed and those left unemployed due to restructuring
  • employers
  • employment and education service professionals.

The aim of the project is to offer employment support services in the form of piloted services to approximately 870 customers altogether. The performance target is that at least half of the customers find a path to further education, working life or other actions in support of their own employment target.

The DuuniPolku project will run until 31 October 2019.
