RecruitmentTraining for companies looking for employees

RecruitmentTraining is a good option for employers who are having difficulties finding skilled employees and new experts on the field are not expected to graduate any time soon.

Recruitment Training

  • is tailored to your business needs
  • usually lasts 3-9 months; minimum duration is 10 training days
  • teaches students professional skills required in their work with the employer
  • can also be planned in cooperation with several employers.

People who have successfully completed the training will be employed in the company. Graduates of RecruitmentTraining can also get employed in a hired-labour agency or as an entrepreneur contracted by the employer.

RecruitmentTraining aims to answer the demands of working life. The goal can be additional or supplementary training or training to prepare for a change of career. The training includes both theory lessons and supervised on-the-job learning and practice.

RecruitmentTraining does not lead to a partial or completed degree.

Employer and TE Services as service organisers

The employer and the employment and economic development administration provide funding for the training together. The employer pays 30 per cent of the total cost specified in the procurement contract.

Standard orientation and personnel training cannot be funded as RecruitmentTraining since the employer is responsible for funding these trainings.

The employment and economic development administration

  • offers professional help in planning and organising the training
  • contributes to costs
  • organises a tender competition for a training service provider specialising on the company’s field.

The employer and the employment and economic development administration select the students together.
