Study Visit, Turku
16.11.2017 - 17.11.2017| Free
Finland, and especially city of Turku, has developed Youth Guarantee since 2005. The results of this development work have been excellent; for example, in 2005 in Turku about 6 % of those who finished their basic education didn’t continue to the secondary level next autumn. Now the number is 5 and we are not talking about per cents but individuals, which are known by their names. One of the main reason for these excellent results is multi-professional cooperation between different actors and good quality of guidance.
Participants of the study visit will learn the best practices of guidance and supporting young people in different phases of their lives and educational paths. On the first day the focus will be on NEETs and early school leavers but also on newly arrived immigrants and refugees. On the second day the program concentrates on vocational training: how to make it more attractive, new learning environments, new ways of teaching, learning and guiding.
Discussions, sharing, learning and transferring innovations are the key principles of this study visit.
Study visit is organised by City of Turku / Education Division, AboaNova project, UBC Task Force on Youth Employment and Well-Being and EUBSR FlagShip School to Work
