Integration training (eduvakk ltd)

The aim of the training for adult immigrants is to help them to adapt to the Finnish society. That means studying the Finnish language, society and culture as well as knowledge about Finnish working life. An immigrant belongs to the integration training programme for 3 years after he/she has received the permission to stay in Finland.

In addition to studies of the Finnish language, the integration training includes studies of every-day-life and life management, information- and communication skills, knowledge of the Finnish society and culture as well as study skills and guiding and preparation for working life. You can apply to the integration training through the Employment and Economic Development Office (TE-toimisto). The Employment and Economic Development Office homepage is here.
