The environmental competence of Turku Vocational Institute (TAI) staff will be strengthened through a training path in sustainable development. Everyone working at TAI will complete at least the basic-level sustainability training. It will include completing The Handprint of a Professional training provided by SYKLI Environmental College and familiarising oneself with TAI’s sustainability material and playing the game attached to the material.

How to complete the training:

  1. Complete the course Introduction to Sustainability on Professional’s Handprint online courses. The course provides comprehensive basic information on sustainable development and the green transition.
  2. Carefully read the contents of this sustainability material and follow the links. The sustainability material describes how TAI takes sustainable development into account in its activities.
  3. Once you have familiarised yourself with the sustainability material, test your knowledge by playing the Seppo game (in Finnish). When you have passed the game, you have completed the training.
