Level Up! Workplace Tutor Goes Europe project visited Lahti as part of a European learning journey

The second stop on our learning journey took place in Lahti, Finland. The seminar concentrated on different learners in different environments, which the participants noticed already the first morning. The classroom was not a typical one but encouraged the learners to enter with a different mindset.

The theme continued with learning at the workplace through visits to the area's biggest employer Cooperative Hämeenmaa and to Lahden Työn Paikka, a service provider for the unemployed.


Reflection on these visits was fruitful: it became clear that the role of the workplace tutor exists and it requires special training. The workplace tutors are not trainers but guides and mentors in different learning activities.

 


Common interests and challenges discovered in the Lahti ME

 

Learning and tutoring at work - the European dimension multiplier event in Lahti Finland brought together our project partners from five European countries and Finnish apprenticeship training providers.

The learning café activity session revealed common interests and challenges on workplace tutoring. An important issue was raised: there still is no clear picture or definition for the role of the tutor in companies. The tasks exist but the position needs to defined soon.

All countries present are facing the same challenges with the increasing amount of learning taking place at the workplace and trying to decide who is responsible for organizing the guidance.
These questions will be discussed in the network established as part of Level Up!
