All vocational training courses start with an introductory course.
The students are strengthened in taking the first step in their further education and will be able to make an informed choice between continuing with the social and health care line or the educational assistant line – or going to a vocational college with other lines.
Introductory Course 1 are solely for younger students coming straight from school. It is general in topic and gives the student a bit of experience in working with people of all ages and in all phases of life. The Introductory Courses 2 take aim at one specific main programme.
The two introductory courses each take 20 weeks.
In order to commence the main programme, the student must have a training agreement with an employer. Most of our students work for the municipal or regional authorities – and a number of students work for private enterprises.
The social and health care educations train students to make a difference for other people who are in a situation where they cannot act for themselves. The student receives pay during the education and is sure of having good possibilities of further training if he or she wants to perfect his or her skills later in life.
During the education, the student learns to work professionally with other people and learns about relations, education and activities that promote development.
