Vanajavesi Adult Education Centre

Vanajavesi Adult Education Centre (VOP) is a liberal adult institution held by a joint municipal authority consisting of the following municipalities:  Hämeenlinna, Janakkala and Hattula. VOP was funded in the year 2000 by pooling four local liberal adult institutions. It is one of the largest of its kind in Finland. We provide approx. 35 000 lessons per year as self-motivated liberal adult education and over 6 000 lessons as labour market training and staff training.

The function of the institution is based on the Liberal Adult Education Act. Vanajavesi Adult Education Centre has the task of responding to changing educational needs and, through its activities, of strengthening social cohesion, active citizenship and the conditions for lifelong learning.

About half of the costs of the institution are covered by the government (statutory government transfer) and the rest comes from student fees and from the municipalities. Labour market training is financed by the labour administration.

VOP provides study opportunities mostly for adults but also for children in cases that there are no other organisations to offer those possibilities. We have over 100 locations where to teach courses because subsidiary is one of our main principles.
