Well-being and Student Welfare Services


The task of student welfare is to take care of the health and well-being of students. A well and healthy student performs better in everyday school life as well.

Student welfare primarily focuses on preventive work: we aim to identify the student's need for assistance and support as early as possible. We support the student in accessing the services of student welfare.

Sakky Tutor


Do you remember what it was like to step through the doors of the vocational school on the first day? Perhaps you were a bit nervous? Do you recall those slightly older students who approached you and offered help? Those students who shared information about the school and guided you in the beginning.

They were likely mentor-students. You also have the opportunity to become a mentor-student and support new students at the beginning of their journey toward becoming future professionals. And, best of all, you get to make new friends!
