Our learning journey across Europe will continue in Lahti, Finland. Salpaus Further Education will host our international group for a five-day session on themes of planning training and tutoring and learning guidance with emphasis on topics different learners in different learning environments.

The week will include two company visits: one to the biggest employer in the Lahti region Cooperative Hämeenmaa with over 3,000 employees and to Lahden Paikka, an organisation helping unemployed people in upskilling activities in order to find jobs for them.

The week’s approach to the themes is competency-based with collaborative and active learning methods applied in the group’s daily work. This practical approach to tutoring at the workplace stems from the Finnish orientation to learning where the learner is seen as the active agent and the tutor the facilitator of learning.
