13-06-2016 New group of Brazilian teachers studying at TAMK

Already a third group of Vocational Education and Training (VET) teachers from Brazil are studying Finnish higher education culture and teaching methods at Tampere University of Applied Sciences (TAMK).

VET Teachers for the Future group started their three months long study period at TAMK in April 2016. The new group consists of 24 teachers from several different fields, and they are studying mainly at the TAMK Main campus. The group members will go back to Brazil now in the summer and will finish their studies there.


The program is delivered in cooperation with Häme University of Applied Sciences (HAMK), and the studies are financed by the Ministry of Education of Brazil, CNPq financial institution and Instituto Federal de Brasilia de Educação.


Ms. Carita Prokki, Director of TAMK EDU is pleased to have the study group at TAMK.


“The brazilian professors are very motivated and TAMK has also very much to learn from them. This is a win win case.”


VET Teachers for the Future – combining theory and practise

The VET Teachers for the Future – Professional Development Certificate is a continuing education program for higher education and vocational teachers.

It is competence-based and multidisciplinary by nature, and always tailored for teachers of various subject fields who wish to learn how to combine theory and practice in teaching their own field of expertise. The latest research results and best practices of the global benchmark, which is the Finnish VET and professional education, are tested and contextualised to meet the needs in various countries and home institutions.


The first group of Brazilian VET Teachers for the Future studied in Finland in 2014 and graduated in Brazil after finishing their studies there.
