Newsletter Omnis April 2022

Wishing you all a sunny future!

This year we are drawing a new strategy at Omnia for the years 2023-2025. It may seem like a distant idea, but at its best, it will be our common success story. 

What should we succeed in? How should Omnia change? These are the questions that you students have the best answer for and we have already received a lot of important information from you via different surveys and feedback. Thank you for your valuable views!

The basis of our strategy comes from the changes and expectations in working life and society. We want to provide everyone an opportunity for life-long learning. We want to ensure that everyone has a qualification and that companies get skilled workforce. We must recognise your differences and ensure that you all achieve your goals in your studies and also in your career.  

We at Omnia believe that everyone has the skills and the willingness to learn! 

Maija Aaltola, principal

We follow the negotiations and will update the information on the impacts of the possible strike on our website.
