North Karelia Municipal Education and Training Consortium

ake m o h w those g n i t a c Edu ppen. a h s g n i th


The consortium develops vocational expertise for the benefit of North Karelia, taking both working life and the individual into consideration.


The consortium educates those who make things happen In all simplicity, our main task is to educate those who make things happen in our daily life, the ones who take care of our well-being, environment and safety. This includes, among others, the professionals who cut our hair, take care of our children, prepare our meals and repair our water taps. This is a task we set out to fulfil as well as possible; so well, in fact, that we are proud to call ourselves masters of vocational education and training. This goal is ambitious, and in order to make it happen we need to maintain vital and functional cooperation within our environment. The consortium is owned by the municipalities that along with the other public operators and businesses of the province play a vital role in our operations.

The consortium in short + An education and development organisation owned by the 13 municipalities of North Karelia. + Our key forms of education include basic vocational education, adult vocational education, apprenticeship training, common non-vocational education and summer university teaching. + Education and other service operations are provided by North Karelia colleges in Joensuu, Kitee, Lieksa, Niittylahti, Nurmes, Outokumpu and Valtimo. + North Karelia Adult Education Centre operates throughout the province.

Quality guarantees results The main role of operators in our group is to develop and bring added value to working life, to the students and also to degree candidates. The quality and profitability of our operation is constantly being measured through both internal evaluation processes and external audits. Our efforts in achieving quality are rewarded by the acknowledgements we have received: in 2004, 2008 and 2012 we were awarded the Quality Award of Vocational Education and Training, and in 2010 the Recognised for Excellence award, R4E.
