Mr Heikki Helve
Savo Consortium for Education is one of the largest providers of vocational education and training and upper secondary education in Finland. The Consortium, consisting of 16 municipalities in the North Savo Region, manages Savo Vocational College and Varkaus Upper Secondary School. The Consortium operates on 10 campuses in Kuopio, Varkaus, Siilinjärvi and Iisalmi. Investment in Facilities
In recent years, Savo Consortium for Education has made significant investment in its facilities. By 2023, operations in Kuopio will be centralised at a new Savilahti campus, offering modern and contemporary learning environments. As the first school buildings in Finland, both Iisalmi and Varkaus campuses have been awarded with the Nordic Swan, which is the official ecolabel of the Nordic countries. The certification will be sought for the new Savilahti complex as well.
