Training visit in Finland: Promoting the 7 Step Model & Testing mobility

The objective of this national visit -which tool place on 4th-6th of August 2014- was to be able to meet with various stakeholders from the sport and active leisure in Finland, to better understand the national challenges, priorities and opportunities around education and training in sport and to introduce the work and latest developments carried out by EOSE. The visit was organised in Vierumaki and hosted by EOSE Members the Sport Institute of Finland alongside the 10th International Seminar for P.E. Teachers.

A specific round table was organised and gathered Principal Jukka Leivo from the Sport Institute of Finland, Director Matti Kauppinen from Haaga-Helia Vierumäki Unit, Senior Advisor Hannu Tolonen from the Ministry of Education and Culture, Executive Director Aurelien Favre from EOSE, Adult education director Pertti Pohjola from Sport Institute of Finland, Mairit Pellinen international co-ordinator at Haaga Helia and Sport Institute of Finland, and Principal lecturer Kari Puronaho from Haaga-Helia Vierumäki Unit.

Aurélien Favre, EOSE Executive Director, had the opportunity to present EOSE but more important to consult with those stakeholders on the potential concept of a European Sector Skills Council and on the issues around learning mobility in the sector.
He also used this occasion to officially introduce the first EOSE book to Senior Advisor Hannu Tolonen from the Finnish Ministry of Education and Culture.

Last but not least, this visit gave the possibility to meet with the three French Students from the University of Lyon who were doing a three months internship at the Sport Institute of Finland as Tennis Instructor, High Rope Animator, and Canoeing Animator. Indeed, EOSE put in place this first ever mobility of students in the DEUST Outdoors programme (vocational program delivered by the University of Lyon – EQF Level 5) and so it was important to be able to assess the strengths and weaknesses of such process. The tutors of the students were also met individually and interviewed to monitor their level of satisfaction and agree ways of improvement for the future.
