In addition to strong subject-matter competence in their specific fields after graduating, students also need the understanding and ability to adapt to ever-changing working life, e.g., behaviour as a member of a work community, employer and employee roles, legislation, and good practices. The project Prepared for working life! aims to develop students’ working life knowledge and skills at all educational levels, and by doing so, also improve the quality of working life in Finland once students begin to work with their knowledge and skills. The project utilises virtual learning tools and has created nationally usable study modules that prepare young adults for their future working life. In Oulu, all three educational levels (university, polytechnic, and vocational college) have collaborated to ensure that the projects succeed regionally. The Oulu project team has also cooperated with the HSEQ Training Park, a new and unique concept, in developing occupational health and safety and well-being at work education.
