Trainees are Finnish university students of Finnish language, Finno-Ugric languages or Finnish literature or newly graduated students of those subjects.
Traineeships last 3 to 6 months.
The trainees can, for example,
- assist in teaching
- run conversation classes
- collect and prepare teaching material

- run a library.
A traineeship should be supervised. A trainee should have a named supervisor, normally a lecturer of Finnish language and culture.
