1. We are seeking new Harassment Contact Persons for the Student Union!

Tamko has had assumed male and female Harassment Contacts for years, who are students at TAMK. These Harassment Contacts provide help and guidance for students who have experienced disturbance in any form. We do not document these cases and the contact people have full confidentiality.  Bullying, inappropriate or discriminating behaviour are taken seriously in TAMK and Harassment Contact Persons are supporting students in these kinds of situations.

The chosen persons for the position will be trained for the part, so we are searching for emphatic, listening and reliable students of different Degree Programmes. We also hope for good written and spoken Finnish skills. Tamko´s board member and employee are supporting these Harassment Contact Persons.

If you are interested, send a free-formed application to edunvalvonta(at)tamko.fi. Application period is open until Tuesday 4th of February 2020. All applicants will be noted after this time. Read more about the activity from Tamko’s website.

2. Blood donation at TAMK 12 February

Once again it’s the time to give up some blood when FRC Blood Service comes to TAMK. On Wednesday, 12 February between 11:00 AM and 3:00 PM, come to the main campus (building B next to the dining area) and reach your helping hand! This event is accessible, so you can get to the place with the elevator.

If you’re unsure about your eligibility to donate, you can take an online test here (choose “In English” in the top left corner) and the momentarily blood need you can check here. Bring your ID card with you, because a student card isn’t enough. You’ll also need a Finnish social security number so that you can donate!
