The City of Tampere is responsible for offering this service to persons whose municipality of residence is Tampere and who belong to the target group of local government employment pilots. Tampere is also responsible for the service for immigrants of Pirkanmaa who are in the process of integration. Exceptionally, within the Pirkanmaa municipalities, the service does not apply to immigrants in Kuhmoinen who are in the process of integration.

The target group for these pilots includes unemployed job seekers, subsidised persons in employment and job seekers in services promoting employment,

1) who are not entitled to an earnings related daily allowance, or

2) who are under 30 years of age, immigrants or foreign language speakers.

The local government pilots on promoting employment have been enacted by law (Act 1269/2020).

A training trial allows you to get to know the educational institution and the content of the training. The training trial mostly takes place at the Tampere Vocational College Tredu. In some cases, also at the Tampere Adult Education Centre, TAKK, and the Municipal Education and Training Consortium, Sasky.

During the training trial you will be guided through the vocational training in a specific field, the employment opportunities and postgraduate study opportunities.

The following fields are included in Tredu’s training trials:

• Health and social services

• Business activity

• Mechanical Engineering and Production Technology

• Logistics

• Tourism and hospitality

• Cleaning and real estate services

Each field of study has a business partner involved.

Training trials are helpful if you have difficulties in choosing a professional field, and you would like to clarify your training plan before applying for a training course. During the trial you will gain insight into the requirements of the training and occupation in question. At the same time, you will find out whether the sector suits you.

The training trial lasts for five days and is conducted online. If you wish, you can also get to know Tredu on the spot. Training trial periods can be organised several times, according to the needs of the client.   The trial is organised for a group. The provision of feedback and reporting of possible absences is agreed with the educational institution. An unemployed job seeker may be entitled to increased unemployment benefit for the duration of the training trial.

Training trials are also organised through Kela.
