Usage notes[edit]

Formerly, until 1990's, the vocational schools were both officially and in common usage called ammattikoulu in Finnish. Then the educational system was renewed and a whole lot of new terminology was introduced, presumably to underline the change. Terms toisen asteen ammatillinen oppilaitos, ammatillinen oppilaitos, ammattioppilaitos and ammattiopisto mean roughly the same thing but the folks still like to call all of them ammattikoulu or more simply, amis.
