Nice to meet you! I´m teacher at Kainuu Vocational college in Kajaani, Finland. I teach entrepreneurship and sustainable development in our school. I´m also interior designer and decorator, and that was my teaching field for 10 years. I just started to coach new “entrepreneurship path”, which started in January 2022. In the path students can go deeper in entrepreneurship, plan or develop their own entrepreneurial dreams, or build new business. Mini companies and their guiding has given great meaning for me since 2008. I want to make possible youngsters’ dreams. Educating other teacher for entrepreneurship education is also a part of my job.
I think I´m quite enthusiastic about entrepreneurship and entrepreneurship education because last autumn I started to study entrepreneurship in university, Master of Engineering, entrepreneurial studies. That and fulltime work keeps me busy for a while. If I have time after work, home and two teen girls, I might do business…some interior business, because I need to do something with my hands…wallpapering is the most relaxing job I know. I have a part-time company, called Sisustusmylly, as a hobby.
When the spring comes, and peaceful evenings and weekends, you find me doing some SUP (stand up paddling). I don`t know what I´m going to be when I grow up, but one solution is to be a SUP bum in Hawaii.
Bridge the Ocean project
Bridge the Ocean is a partnership project of the Erasmus+ program, which creates a model of global mobility and cooperation between European and Canadian Colleges. The partners are four vocational education and training (VET) colleges from Finland, two from Canada and one from the Netherlands and Denmark. In the project, two European and one Canadian study units are planned, which will be piloted with a multinational group during the project.
The project is the first European Erasmus+ VET project that involves partners from outside Europe. The main goals of the Bridge the Ocean partnership project are to increase the number of global mobility of students and experts, teachers, and at the same time promote the development of both professional and international competence and key skills. The project seeks visibility and interest in the internationalization of VET.
