Cooperation with educational institutions

Various central government employers offer a number of traineeships for students in different fields. In 2019, about 13700 students completed traineeships with the central government. We focus on providing adequate supervision and to ensure that the tasks offered are suitable. “I really got a chance to do the kind of work I have studied for”, one student described the traineeship period.

Traineeships can be offered round the year, but the highest numbers of applications are received in the beginning of the year and spring months. Most of the traineeships of the central government organisations can be found on the Valtiolle.fi service.

Traineeships of the universities can be found on the Aarresaari site.

Traineeships are also available for university of applied sciences students. However, this type of cooperation must be agreed on directly between the agency and the educational institution. Students at universities of applied sciences should, for example, contact the employer liaison officers of their institutions about possibilities for traineeships.

Thesis-related cooperation is possible and should be agreed upon separately with the relevant central government operating unit. For more information, see for example http://www.korkeakouluosaajat.fi/english.

The agencies offer introduction to working life periods for higher comprehensive school pupils where possible. These periods must be agreed directly with the agency.

See you at the fair!

Central government organisations also have a presence at various events and fairs. Sometimes an individual agency has its own stand, while at other times a common central government team is sent out.

Why not come and talk to us, also about working for the central government!
