Tourism Industry


Evaluation of vocational competence in the upper secondary level vocational qualification in the tourism industry was implemented between 2014 and 2017. In the evaluation, the students who had started studying for the vocational qualification in autumn 2014 were monitored until spring 2017. The evaluation data was obtained from the grades given for vocational skills demonstrations and from supplementary data describing the arrangement of such demonstrations. The evaluation comprised a total of 25 providers of vocational education and training (VET) and 501 students.

The final report was published in 2018.
