Our training activities are based on the Vierumäki values, which we have defined together

Vierumäki nature hiking-15


We encourage our students to work towards their goals, to learn from their mistakes and successes, and to take responsibility for their studies. All our activities aim at the students’ graduation and success.


We are positive and solution-oriented. We inspire learning and get excited ourselves. We take care of our own and each other’s well-being and condition.


We make responsible choices and respect the nature around us. We encourage our students to follow our example and support the students’ learning process by making use of the abundance of the surrounding nature.


Following tradition, we support our students on their way to becoming professionals as a part of the Vierumäki team. We enable healthy nutrition, adequate rest, developmental free time and a study-life balance.
