Student and Study Counselling in Primary School
Teachers, the student counsellor and other school staff guide students at school, during the lessons, and they assist them in making study-related choices as well as in planning for the future. Counselling supports the student's learning and the development of cooperation skills and self-reliance.
The primary school class teacher is the student's main supervisor. Classroom teachers know their students well, and are able to identify a student's strengths and areas for improvement. Primary-school education includes getting students acquainted with working life. Working life is introduced by visiting experts of a specific field or by visiting a specific company. All of Vantaa 6th-year students participate in the Corporate Society activities.
