Completers of curriculum-based vocational qualifications in the calendar year

Description of the data collection

The targets of the data collection are completers of curriculum-based vocational qualifications in the calendar year.

From whom are data collected?

The data providers are all educational institutions in which students have completed curriculum-based vocational qualifications.
The data are collected as file transfers via the Internet. The application remains open from 10 January to 10 February. The application may only be accessed by data suppliers who have received a user ID from Statistics Finland.

Data processing

The obligation to provide data is based on the Statistics Act (280/2004). The Statistics Act obliges Statistics Finland to treat the provided data as confidential.

What are the data used for?

The data are used to produce statistics on qualifications completed in curriculum-based initial vocational education, which form a part of more extensive statistics on qualifications completed in vocational education. The data are used by representatives of the educational administration in the planning and evaluation of education, as well as by organisers of education, and association, researchers and students in the field. Because the collected data are individual-based, they can also be combined with Statistics Finland’s other data files to examine applications and acceptance to education, student flows, overlapping studies, employment among students and transition from school to work.
