University of Helsinki Centre for Continuing Education HY+

University of Helsinki Centre for Continuing Education HY+ was established in June 2016. Despite of our seemingly short history, as a fully owned company by University of Helsinki, we have been providing continuing education and development services for both organizations and individuals in Finland and abroad for decades. We have an evidence based track record in creating individually designed training programs, and managing various development programs to enhance the capabilities and competences of our partnering organizations. One of our missions is to encourage life-long learning as a habit for securing your future in the changing world.

The purpose of our organization is to improve the future world and well-being of people through enhancing learning, knowledge sharing, and development. We believe in collaboration and empowerment and therefore focus on building trust with our collaboration partners and organisations while we help them to develop. Our role in development programs is to assist our collaboration partners to learn and take ownership of our joint project. By doing so, we ensure that the jointly drafted plans and ways of working will be implemented and the development continues.

Empowering you to make a difference!
