Are you already a teacher wanting to develop your skills in the field of counselling? In JAMK's Teacher Education College you can get the study counsellor qualification in 1-1,5 years.

The Study Counsellor Education is a post-graduate programme aimed at qualified teachers wishing to specialise in the field of study counselling and guidance. Most of our adult students continue working while their studies.

Skilled counselling professionals are needed in various stages of education and life overall. The programme comprises 60 ECTS credits and is organised in Finnish as multi-mode education during three semesters.

The education provides a comprehensive qualification for study counselling in the various forms of education, depending on prior education. The objectives and implementation are based on the rapidly changing needs of working life and of the operating environment.

Implementation

  • Studying on a part-time basis, the programme will last for ca. 1.5 years and consist of three contact sessions per semester (2-3 days/session), online courses, small group studies and independent studies.
  • Studies can be completed in Finnish either in the study group in Jyväskylä or in Etelä-Pohjanmaa (Study groups in 2018). In both study groups the education is offered in Finnish.
  • The studies of both groups will begin on 5th - 6th June 2018 with an orientation contact session in Jyväskylä.

Content of studies

Study Counsellor Education programme includes a more comprehensive interpretation of the large-scale expertise of study counsellors. It also seeks to develop each student’s work and operating environment on a practical level.

The content and proceeding of the themes are based on students’ growth into the profession through research on their own work.
