Other vocational education
In addition to the initial vocational qualifications, you can complete vocational qualifications or specialist vocational qualifications or other additional vocational qualifications, such as parts of degrees, different continuing education modules or short-term modules at Helsinki Vocational College and Adult Institute.
You can also supplement your vocational skills while you work, as an apprentice, in vocational labour market training or as in-service training. You can find more information on applying for studies on the Helsinki Vocational College and Adult Institute website.
Each student receives a personal competence development plan (HOKS). The development plan takes into account the skills the student may have already acquired earlier and contains plans for which skills the student needs and how to acquire them in their various learning environments. Students who already have the required vocational skills may prove their skills by completing genuine work assignments.
