The brief

Immigrants coming to Finland are facing many kinds of challenges – the biggest ones being learning Finnish language and culture and integrating into the Finnish working life. The opportunities in working life are especially scarce for immigrants and because of this, it’s harder for them to integrate into the Finnish society

The background

Oulu Adult Institute wants to create a concept which can increase immigrants’ job opportunities and contacts to working life in realistic and feasible ways

The problem

*The project team’s objective is to research which kind of elements and opportunities a comprehensive connection to working life can offer for immigrants (e.g. language studies, integration education etc.) and create a model which could be implemented and offered as part of Oulu Adult Institute’s studies / course offering. *The team must also find out the biggest obstacles that hinder immigrants’ chances of finding a job. The solution & concept must be based on these factors
