Latest release:
Employment of recent graduates with initial vocational qualifications weakened by 8 percentage points
20 Jan 2022
According to Statistics Finland's education statistics, employment became more difficult for recent graduates with initial vocational qualifications in 2020. Sixty-two per cent of them were employed in the following year after graduation. Especially those graduating from services had more difficulties in finding employment during the coronavirus year than one year before.

Description: These statistics examine graduates' employment and entry into further education, and their regional transition within a given time period from graduation. The phenomena are described at the end of the year according to transition to employment, unemployment, further studies, military service or other activity. In addition, the statistics describe the transition by area, industry, employer sector or other information. The statistics are produced by combining a number of Statistics Finland’s individual-based data files. No surveys are conducted among graduates.
