Coding and Finnish Language
LearnIT - Coding and Finnish Language is an eight-month training program for unemployed or those who are under the threat of becoming unemployed, who are looking for a chance to learn new programming skills, polish their existing ones and improve their Finnish.
This training is primarily targeted for job seeker customers in Pirkanmaa region whose native language is not Finnish and for those who need improvement in their Finnish language skills. The goal of this program is to enable participants to apply to software development positions with roles such as front-end developer or back-end developer or other roles in the IT sector.
Content and Methods
LearnIT- Coding and Finnish Language training program offers you the opportunity to update your skillset and to learn and practice new technologies with modern programming languages and gain hands-on experience with new tools and methods. The program gives you an opportunity to learn Finnish language in an authentic work environment.
The training is full-time and implemented as blended learning. Training includes onsite and online studies and meetings as well as studying independently.
Training is made of three key elements: software development, Finnish language and on-the-job-training in a real company. On top of these, all participants get tips and support for career management and job seeking. Training is personalized for each participant based on their respective skills, needs and targets.
Working life-oriented Finnish language training
The Finnish language training includes oral and written communication in Finnish, working life and culture in Finland and everyday life at the workplace: meetings, teamwork and customer service.
