The SAFHY seminar in Helsinki on the 10th of November gathered participants from all over Finland. Ms Merja Oljakka from SOL gave a lecture about destroying Norovirus from the cleaning services point of view. Also, Ms Sirpa Turtainen from KEUDA told us about her previous work in the Ebola area. As in Tallinn, the SAFHY platform was presented and the participants could click themselves to the platform, and get familiar with it.
It is obvious that in VET field in Finland all VET institutions are taking huge steps with using digital solutions in education. Educators all over Finland are developing digital learning/teaching material, and it is of great importance that we share information about SAFHY’s results, since under this project we are developing a broad material for VET institutions’ use.
The dissemination of the project’s outcomes continued in the SAFHY seminars. The seminars were targeted to reach platform’s end-users, VET providers, VET educators and stakeholders. In Tallinn Ms Maire Randvere from Järva County Hospital gave a lecture about the quality issues in health care hygiene, and Ms Helge Alt from Puhastusekspert OÜ about the quality and trends of cleaning. The participation to the discussions was active, when Ms Alt encouraged the audience to express their opinions.
The participants of the Tallinn seminar had an access to the SAFHY platform and they got also passwords for couple of days to get familiar with it. The participants represented VET institutions, hospitals and health care and cleaning services work places from all over Estonia.
Project manager Tuija Laine and Cleaning service team’s coordinator Teija Lampinen presented project’s results at the Round Table sessions in the EfVET (the European Forum of Technical and Vocational Education and Training) Conference. The conference provided an excellent chance to tell the VET providers and professionals all over Europe about the digital steps we are taking in the Central Baltic area. There were two Round Table Sessions in which the results were presented.
The participants were interested in the SAFHY digital platform. Digital solutions in vocational education are increasing, and different kinds of solutions for VET will be developed in the future. It was important to show, what we have got in the Central Baltic area, and to share experiences. The most important task is learning and how to enhance students’ excellence and professional skills.
