Taitaja2021-semifinals are organized in competitors own vocational institutes

Deterioration of the corona-situation and regional restrictions have influenced the decision to organize the Taitaja2021 semifinals in a new way.  To avoid travelling outside of their own region, the students will take part of the semifinals in their own vocational institutes.  

Corona-pandemic has brought many new procedures to vocational education, and the same goes with Taitaja. We hope that all of us have understanding, courage and willing to create the renewed Taitaja-competition together. In Skills Finland and Taitaja, we will do all our best to give our support to you. We wish the youth to have a possibility to show their skills in Taitaja-event also in the future. 

In addition, we are preparing for special arrangements in concerning the Taitaja2021 finals in May. All the necessary will be done to ensure the safety and health of the competitors.
