We work in various teaching positions with young people and adults, focus on specialist tasks, participate actively in national and international networks and work with an entrepreneurial spirit across units. In Finnish and in English! We produce publications and implement client projects.

Almost half of our staff work in specialist positions, over 100 work in research and development and the rest work in support services that secure our operations.

Work has been made smooth: we offer the latest educational technology, a wide variety of workspaces and, when feasible, the possibility to work remotely.
