Voluntary additional education (10th grade)

  • Service
  • Espoo
  • Public service

In voluntary additional education, young people can clarify their study plans, revise their knowledge and raise the grades in their basic education certificate. An individual curriculum is prepared for each pupil. Voluntary additional education may include general subjects from to the basic education syllabus, optional subjects of basic education, other subjects and multidisciplinary modules in accordance with the function of basic education, vocational studies and familiarization with working life.

In voluntary additional education, groups are formed based on the number of applicants. The applicants cannot choose their school themselves because the number of groups formed depends on the total number of applicants. Groups are not necessarily formed in all schools.

Pupils who have received a special support decision in the end of basic education, are allocated a place in a separate group of voluntary additional education or in a mainstream group, depending on the need for individual support.

To whom and on what terms

Voluntary additional education (10th grade) is meant for young people under 18 years living in Espoo, who have finished their basic education in the same or previous year, who do not receive a study place in the joint application.
