What about the Finnish Women in Vocational Education? (#18/100)

Let me give you a few facts to celebrate this Women’s Day in Finland 100 years and TAKK 55:

  • International Women’s Day has been celebrated on the 8th of March since the beginning of 1900’s
  • Finland has been celebrating this day since 1990, though Finland was the third in the world and first in Europe to give women the right to vote and to be nominated in elections in 1906
  • Tampere Adult Education Foundation board has 3 women out of the 9 members
  • Tampere Adult Education Centre board of directors has 3 women out of 7 members
  • 41 % of TAKK students are women.

TAKK’s women drive the busses, manage the teams, guard the shopping malls, nurse the elderly, weld the metal and make the electrical installations. Women in VET. Happy Womens’ Day to everyone!

Happy Women's Day

We are “every women” in VET
