The world and society around us are going through constant change. Because of this, skills needs are also changing.
The Unit of Continuing Education provides continuing professional education that boosts professional competence and qualifications in the field of teaching and education. We organise also shorter, up-to-date courses that are based on the demands of the labour market. Our operations are mainly publicly funded (Finnish National Agency for Education, Ministry of Education and Culture).
We act as a link between the university and the local community, working with local schools and a number of different universities and other institutions. We serve both individuals wanting to update their professional expertise as well as organisations in need of continuing education services. Please note that we only offer services in Finnish.

In spring 2017 we conducted a survey of educational needs. The objective of the survey was to collect data on the continuing education needs of education and early childhood education professionals in Lapland. This information helps us develop our operations in the future.
