1 Application for training places in health care and social services and training contracts

In the field of health care and social services, most training places are contracts between TAMK and the training organisation. The Director of the School of Health Care and Social Services is in charge of concluding the contracts (individual students do not conclude contracts).

In the field of health care and social services, TAMK negotiates training places with organisations. Training places are offered through an online training place system called Jobiili. The training places mainly open at Jobiili, where you reserve your place for the agreed period of time during the given time. All training places are however not within the system. You agree on their reservation and the suitability of the training place is checked based on the e-form you filled. If you as a health care and social services student complete your training as salaried (see separate instructions), you have to acquire the training place by yourself.

In the field of health care and social services, the training place receives student-based compensation for the training. TAMK has both fixed-term and permanent training contracts with training places where TAMK students regularly complete their training. If you complete your training in an organisation where TAMK students occasionally complete their training, the supervising teacher has to check the validity of the contract.

2 Training contract in other fields

In other degree programmes, you search for the training place by yourself, usually by asking a training place directly from organisations. You enrol through PAKKI. The supervising teacher accepts the training place for the training period and signs the training contract.


Training places are provided at universities of applied sciences’ employment and information service called Jobteaser. As a rule, students acquire their training places by themselves. Additional tips and links to job search can be found in the Student's Guide.

No fee is paid for supervision of students to training organisations in other degree programmes. A contract is made on the training. The student fills in the contract and asks for the needed signatures.
