The students from Salpaus have started their foreign practical placement in the Institute of Technical Education in Singapore with the fellow students of Ekami and Turku Vocational Institute. The students’ placements in ITE are supported by the Top Expertise Professional network funded by the National Education Agency of Finland. The aim of the network is to facilitate for top expertise in vocational qualification. Our teachers have also met the principals of ITE during lunch that was hosted by Ms Low Khak Gek, the CEO of ITE.
As the Indian population of Singapore has been celebrating Deepavali last week, the student Jaana Säkki of Turku Vocational Institute was chosen as the representative of Finland to the WorldSkills2019 in Hotel Reception competition. As a trainee of top expertise professional, Jaana and our other students are having a good opportunity to practice the important cultural and language skills while in Singapore. The WorldSkills2019 will be held in Kazan, Russia next August.
