TAKK won the Vocational Education and Training Quality Award of the Finnish Ministry of Education and Culture
TAKK received the Quality Award in a competition organised by the Ministry of Education and Culture of Finland. Minister of Education and Culture, Ms Sanni Grahn-Laasonen gave the award today the first of November 2016 in a seminar on vocational education and training in Jyväskylä, Finland.
The Quality Award competition has been organised since 2001. TAKK participated for the first time and right away the award was brought home to Tampere region, for the first time in the history of the competition.
The Quality Award competition evaluates the quality of the education activities in the concerned vocational institutions. Special themes of the year were customer-oriented and competence-based approach. The same themes are central also in the reform of the vocational education and training of Finland, which will come into effect in the beginning of the year 2018.
The competition board states that TAKK’s strength as a trainer is stable quality in all the sectors to be evaluated: customer orientation and competence-based approach come true in all activities, and building individual study paths is a comprehensive way of action. Worklife and sectoral variation is taken into account in the implementation of the training services and worklife cooperation. TAKK was also appraised for organising special needs services for all the students who require them.
The VET Quality Award is a recognition for the activities of the educational institution and the continuous development, for the quality of the outcome and for the exemplary work in developing vocational education and training.
- This is a significant recognition for us. We have worked with determination for the quality development for several years. In TAKK, development and bold pioneering are part of our daily life, emphasizes the principal of TAKK, Mr Teppo Tapani.
