Voluntary additional basic education (10th grade)
Additional education supports the students’ growth and development, and also prevents marginalisation. The students learn about independence, responsibility and self-knowledge.
The goal of the additional education is to improve the students’ ability to enter secondary education, as well as the knowledge and skills required for future studies. The aim is that a student has a plan for secondary education and is prepared to start secondary education after the additional education.
The objectives and content of additional education are described in the curriculum for additional education in Helsinki.
Students apply to additional education via the Studyinfo web service. Currently, young people who live in Helsinki and who have completed comprehensive education in spring 2019 and 2020 can be admitted to additional education. It is not possible to request placement in a specific school during the application stage.
