Workshop in Hamburg on supporting newly arrived refugees’ integration in society

On the 30th of May PA Education coordinators from the Hamburg Institute for Vocational Education and Training together with Norden Association in Sweden held a workshop on integration. The workshop aimed at offering a platform for exchanging experiences and best practices on how to integrate newly arrived refugees in the labour markets as well as in society. In the Land of Hamburg “Work and Integration for Refugees (W.I.R)” is an example of a well-functioning one-stop-shop. It offers a venue that combines support and services to develop social skills and thus increase the employability in close cooperation between public and private sectors as well as with civil society. This study visit is meant to be the basis for the following exchange.

Among 19 participants of the works were representatives of: City of Umeå, Swedish Association of Local Authorities and Regions, City of Bromölla, Save the Children, Norden Association, Hamburg Institute for Vocational Education (HIBB), City of Skellefteå, Swedish Public Employment Service, Swedish Public Employment Service City of Umeå, Swedish Public Employment Service Skellefteå, Batteriet Nord-Norge, City of Bodö, Federal Employment Agency, Skåne Association of Local Authorities, Youth Job Agency, Youth Active Plus, City of Oulu.

Generally the visit at W.I.R and the presentation of the “AnkommenApp” were perceived very positively. As the result of the meeting the participants offered and gathered many ideas about a possible one-stop-shop system, close to the one in Hamburg. They went home with new thoughts about methods and processes needed to integrate newly arrived refugees. The next step will be a study visit in Oulu, Finland.
