In Finland, TVET students learn and are assessed by a teacher and working life representative in work-based situations where they must demonstrate skills and competencies through practical tasks in order to graduate from their course. Therefore, making work-based learning opportunities available was of great importance once the COVID-19 crisis began.
The COVID-19 crisis not only caused TVET institutions to transition to distance learning, but also affected the operations of the companies and organizations where students complete their work-based training. It was important to find flexible solutions that would allow work-based learning and skills demonstrations to continue despite the crisis, and thus ensure students' graduation.
