Integration training for immigrants

Integration training gives adult immigrants better possibilities of becoming a part of Finnish society. To receive unemployment benefit, you must take the initial survey and participate in integration training. The requirement to participate in the training concerns both labour market training and independent training funded with unemployment benefit. 

In integration training, you can

  • learn Finnish or Swedish and communication skills
  • pick up civic and working life skills
  • have a personal vocational plan drawn up for you.

Immigrants can also pursue comprehensive school or general upper secondary school studies as labour market training if this might give them better access to working life and further education and training.

Orders on the provision of integration training are issued by the National Board of Education.
