JobyTAKK (Erasmus+) mobility project involves both staff members and adult students of Tampere Adult Education Centre. During the two years of the project period (1 June 2015 – 31 May 2017) nearly fourty staff members and students will take part in European on-the-job periods. The aim of the project is to strengthen the worklife and vocationally related skills of both staff and students of TAKK and to offer transnational work placement opportunities to the students at separately determined vocational fields.

European partners are involved in organising the positions and the on-the-job experience in a named organisation, in providing training support and technical assistance in favour of the participants.  The activities for staff members consist of giving lectures, making visits, having meetings and doing job shadowing; focusing on worklife cooperation, worklife skills and on-the-job learning. The activities related to the work placements of students consist of positioning of the student and of assisting with arrangements.

JobyTAKK for staff

Internationality is strongly emphasized in TAKK strategy and international activities are not only prerequisite to the development of implementations but also an entity that itself develops actions. The business idea of TAKK reflects TAKK’s international role: TAKK promotes the success of its customers in a sustainable way by offering both education and development services – domestically as well as internationally. Enhancing the skills related to international activities is one of the focus areas of the competence development in the HR and Training program of TAKK for 2016-2018, according to the TAKK main strategy.

Work life cooperation and competence development in the workplace has been chosen as the focal area of development in JobyTAKK 2015 - 2017. In addition to the students and trainers, also other TAKK personnel can participate in the project, particularly developing their substance competences (e.g. property management, secretaries).

The concrete goal of the project is to provide personnel members training periods (job shadowing) in European partner institutions and companies. Trainers, whose periods also include company visits, set up and make sure the quality on-the-job periods for their students at the same time; the essential goal of the project is to get to know the work life cooperation of the partner educational institutions, competence development at the workplace and strengthening the work life skills. Furthermore, the personnel has a chance to strengthen their own field substance competence.

The impact of the project for the personnel:

  • the focus areas of the project; the improved skills for work life cooperation and for competence development at the workplace and the new ideas and improved skills for developing work skills by using European examples and experiences.
  • finding new on-the-job positions for the students of one’s own specific vocational field and enforcing cooperation partnerships
  • developing individual substance competence

  • strengthening linguistic and multicultural skills

  • better coping at work and new enthusiasm for developing one’s vocational training field
