“We increased the number of students to be admitted to both teacher and guidance counselor training in this year's student search. The School of Vocational Teacher Education has also redesigned the teacher training curriculum, which takes better account of changes in vocational education and higher education, says Jari Laukia, director of the school.
Teachers already apply to vocational teacher education, who lack formal teacher qualifications, as well as those who intend to become teachers. The application period is held annually in January along with other vocational teacher colleges.
