Ways of learning in Skills Centria

 

Workshops

The language and communication workshops (English, Finnish and Swedish) are new. The student receives guidance in a small group and in person according to the student’s needs. The student informs the teacher about his or her own challenge and learning goal in advance by e-mail, so the teacher can guide the student to achieve the goal. Participation in the language and communication workshops is possible both face-to-face or online. The student can attend the workshop regularly or occasionallyIt is also possible for a student to get creditsThe workshop is held every other week. 

The workshops in math and physics are organized to support the first-year studies for students in Technology.
