Studies are a great option for immigrants, those who are currently working part-time or who don’t have a professional qualification in Finland yet.

In the farm working skill inquiry for farm companies, it was revealed that farms need help in a variety of different work tasks. In the questionnaire, farm owners rank taking care of farm animals, plant production, and machine work skills as the most important thing in daily working life on the farms.
”Working on the farm is often a multi-talented job, the best way to learn new things is by doing”, answered one farmer. As a student you can do the assisting jobs and maybe more demanding jobs independently. If you have a good attitude to learn new things, don’t hesitate to apply for our training. Let’s find out together whether you have technical skills for machines or for example the abilities to work with farm animals.

The staff in Mustiala is looking forward to meet new students.

The training has been funded by the Service Centre for Continuous Learning and Employment. The Service Centre promotes the competence development of working-age people and the availability of skilled labor. The operations of the Service Centre are overseen by the Ministry of Education and Culture and the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment.
