Finnish professional qualifications are a special mixture of theoretical studies and apprenticeships in real projects which ensures the students have skills and competencies that are relevant in the changing world. Our professional education services develop able professional with skills needed now and in the future. The emphasis on lifelong learning prepare the grounds for constant development of skills during the training and in the workplace.
We provide Finnish professional qualifications that equip the students with the skills needed and valued in the world of work. The qualifications have an emphasis on entrepreneurship that will bolster the students' intrapreneurial skills. The qualifications include company placement or internships that will ensure flexible and seamless transition to the labour market and also enable occupational development in the workplace.
Assessment of Competence
We also perform assessments of competence for professionals already in the world of work. The assessment is based on competence requirements of a relevant Finnish qualification or its module. The assessment gives a comprehensive view of competences, strengths and development needs of the worker. Should any development needs arise, additional professional training is provided. After passing the assessment, FGES will issue a Certificate of Competence.
