Educational affairs’ announcements


PIRATE ry was innovating with TAMK’s and Pirha’s employees new ways to do practical training, since there are plenty of students but not so many open spots in Jobiili. In HUS there are unit M12 that treat vascular surgery patients. HUS opened an unit called ”oppimisyksikkö”, ”learning unit” where are 5 students in morning and in evening shifts, and 1-2 students in night shifts. There are also 2-3 employees in morning and in evening shifts and 1 employee in night shifts that supervises students.  

The idea behing this learning unit was to add more practical training spots for students. In practise this would help students with teamwork skills and decision-making skills.  Together with employees of TAMK and Pirha as well as student representatives we pondered how this would work in Pirha. We also took international students into account, and how much the learning model would benefit them as well. Right now this learning unit-concept is just in consideration. 

Sopo and kopo 

PIRATE ry’s social affairs and educational affairs representatives will answer you if you have questions about the training or its quality, or if you want to report inappropriate treatment. tai 

You can also contact the board anonymously in our purnausnurkka:
