In 2016, Sasky won the first prize in the competition for the Best Practices in VET organised by the Finnish National Agency for Education. The theme of the competition was Co-operation with the World of Work and the Impact of Training. Talent Path is part of this award-winning practice.
In practice, we build a learning environment in co-operation with the company, purchasing new machinery and equipment for shared use. Then we start the Talent Path: the student completes their studies mainly in the new learning environment.
The benefits of this co-operation model are clear:
- The students can engage in real production already during their studies, which is motivating
- Constant dialogue between the teachers and the company
- We and the company can modernise our machinery and update staff skills
- Commitment of the labour-market in the development of VET
