The architecture of youth work education in Finland
The aim of the study was to create an overview of the education in Finnish youth work, which is on a good level by European standards. The goal was to see how the learning of youth workers is supported in Finland, particularly within formal education. The project produced a description of Finnish youth work for a European audience and analysed the practices which relate to Finnish youth work education.
