Inspiring and Strengthening the Competence-based Approach in all VET in Finland - Support Material for Implementation

Guidelines for education providers

New VET statutes and the National Qualification Requirements entered into force on 1 August 2015. All education providers must ensure the implementation of a learning outcomes based approach. Although this approach is nothing new, education providers are at different stages of putting it into practice. Education providers have requested common guidelines that structure and support the implementation. This support material aims to facilitate education providers' work in implementing the necessary changes.
