KPEDU - The Federation of Education in Central Ostrobothnia consists of 7 vocational schools and an adult education unit. We arrange vocational upper secondary education for young students (16-19 years) and for adults. Additionally we are an active partner in development projects and co-operate with working life in our region. Our main campus is in Kokkola, In the middle of Finland, by the sea. Part of our schools are in countryside.

We provide students with upper secondary vocational qualifications, with curricula developed in close co-operation with the working life. Our emphases have been selected so as to develop our education and training towards ever better vocational competence from local point of view, and to encourage students for further studies.
