Apprenticeship Training

The apprenticeship training is a flexible, versatile and practical way of developing one’s vocational competence. In total, there are more than 300 qualifications to choose from and Sampo provides preparatory training in some of the fields of study.

The apprenticeship training is vocational training based on an employment contract, allowing the student to complete basic, vocational or specialist vocational qualifications or parts of them. The apprenticeship training is suitable to both those with no prior qualifications and those who already have previous qualifications or degrees.

Most of the learning happens at the workplace with the supervision of a workplace instructor, complemented with classroom teaching and distance learning. The skills and competence acquired during the training are demonstrated and assessed in a competence-based qualification.

Apprenticeship training is funded by state subsidiaries. The apprenticeship training center pays for the student’s studies and qualification assessment. The student pays individually for the qualification fee of 58 €.
