WORKFORCE

In the Kokkola region, we have versatile education in the Finnish, Swedish, and English languages to support the varying personnel needs of companies. In addition to preparatory vocational education, we have both polytechnic and university education on offer with training paths from skilled worker level to doctoral theses.

At Kokkola University Consortium Chydenius you can study for master degrees in social work, chemistry, chemical engineering, and ITC, or take courses for class teachers in adult education.

Centria University of Applied Sciences (CUA) has master’s degree options for e.g. chemical engineering, business economics, and international business management.

The young workforce of the region has a strong tradition of staying close to home; 75% of employed CUA graduates were employed in the region, in Ostrobothnian provinces.

Tailored training for companies is further supported by close cooperation with employment services.

SUPPORTS & FUNDING

Kokkola and Keski-Pohjanmaa region are part of a sparsely populated priority area. In EU fund allocation, Kokkola gets significant advantage of this special position.
