Training with integrated language learning

Submitted by CFL Söderhamn, Sweden

In the surge of migrants and refugees that arrived in Europe starting in 2015, many of them came to Sweden to seek asylum and start a new life. One challenge that arose was frustration from the immigrants and the local labour markets regarding the amount of time it took to first learn Swedish and then pursue an education or validate previous schooling before many could enter the workforce. For people choosing vocational training, there are now programmes where language and trade are taught simultaneously. These programmes shorten the time when immigrants are dependent on welfare. Upon completion of the courses, students receive a diploma for the vocational training as well as a grade for their language course, to make them employable in the local job market.
