Valo-Valmennusyhdistys is a national association improving access to learning, employment, wellbeing and participation in society. Our mission is to support, guide and train some of the most vulnerable members of society to lead a good, ordinary life, where their goals in areas of health and wellbeing, education and employment, housing and family/friends have been achieved.
Valo-Valmennusyhdistys provides education services to various organisations. Our learning environments are informal, work/employer-based environments, enabling learning through real life tasks. We develop the Valo-Valmennus –concept, that enables the completion of vocational qualification modules (and full qualifications) in informal learning environments. We also offer basic skills training (reading, writing, maths, IT).
We continuously evaluate and develop our practices, also with international partners. We develop and distribute new ways of working that support people in vulnerable groups.
Valo-Valmennusyhdistys currently works in Tampere, Sastamala, Turku, Rauma, Pori and Helsinki.
