Our coaching service

Clients attending the From Family leave to working life coaching will participate in group coaching with other parents but also have a personal coach to support their transition to the working life. The coaching provides guidance and support, and its content is planned according to the client’s needs and goals to support in the process of their career planning.


Topics covered in the coaching include personal skills and strengths, employment and training options, IT skills in job search, knowledge of working life, identification of potential barriers to employment, assessment of the personal job search situation and comprehensive development of job search skills.

After the coaching, the client has the necessary tools for moving into working life, applying for studies or starting a suitable career path. In addition, customers receive peer support and networks through group meetings.

To whom the coaching is
and how is it organized?

Parents on family leave living in the Pirkanmaa region who feel they need support in their transitioning to working life can participate in the From Family Leave to Working Life coaching. Coaching includes 10 hours of group coaching in a small group (5-8 people) and 16 hours of individual coaching with a personal coach. The coaching in Tampere takes place at Aleksanterinkatu 26. Coaching can be also conducted online remotely. The coaching is organized within a period of three months, after which, approximately six months after the start of the service, there is a follow-up meeting with the coach. You can register for the service via the registration link until June 2022.
