The YourSkills concept seeks to stimulate interest in vocational education and training among the newly arrived by providing information and inspiring an interest in training courses, and talking about professional pride and skills. We do this through videos, illustrations and social media advertisements.
This service enjoyed a boost in the second half of 2020 when an Arabic and Farsi interpreter began helping to answer questions and cut through the information jungle. Guidance was already offered in Swedish and English. People who contact YourSkills often need help finding information about a particular course or are seeking contact with a study or vocational guidance counsellor in their municipality. The service is much appreciated, and almost 450 conversations have been initiated.
In addition to this, four new videos were produced highlighting new arrivals who quickly began working in Sweden by taking vocational training or validating their previous expertise. Visit yourskills.se.
