My name is Kari Koskela and I am working as a vocational special needs teacher at Luovi Vocational College in Muhos, near the city of Oulu in Finland. I have taught about 13 years. Now I teach truck drivers, but I have taught also car repairers.
I love nature and fishing in Lapland, especially in summertime, during white nights when sun does not set at all. Spare time I also like drive a motorcycle. I am a team player, very practical and hands on in my daily work with students with special needs.
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.
