Change training

Change training (MuutosKoulutus) is intended for situations where a company has to make its employees redundant for production-related or financial reasons. Through change training, the company can support the opportunities of those who are made redundant to be employed elsewhere or the ability of workers who are laid off to transfer to other positions in the company. The training is tailored to the needs of the students, and its student selections and funding are managed jointly by the employer and the employment and economic development administration. Additional information.
