When a student whose native language is not Finnish or Swedish starts in basic education, a syllabus of either Finnish as a Second Language and Literature (S2) or Swedish as a Second Language and Literature (R2) will be chosen for him/her. The aim of the syllabus is to support the development of the child’s Finnish or Swedish skills.
The child can also study together with children who study Finnish or Swedish as a native language.
Native language education is meant for students whose native language is something other than Finnish or Swedish. The education strengthens linguistic skills and the cultural identity. Also students who have learnt the language abroad can participate in the teaching.
Teaching is given in over 20 different languages. The lessons are usually after school day in specifically selected schools.
For school years 1–6 guidance counselling is given during subject teaching and other school activities.
For school years 7–9 guidance counselling is its own subject.
The key tasks of a guidance councellor:
- Guidance of growth and development
- Guidance of studying and studying skills
