Malmö’s Best Practices

UBC Task Force supporting Youth employment and well-being arranged in cooperation with the Skåne Association of Local Authorities a study visit in Malmö on 3 and 4  December 2019.

Study visit focused on newly arrived immigrants and others who need help with their basic skills in finding their fastest and best path to the labour market and participation in society. The main themes of the two-day program were as follows:

  • The human aspects of learning
  • Best practices – practical methods in the classroom
  • Coaching and cooperation – the classroom in a context
  • Special skills/needs, broadening the recruitment and the employer perspective

Study visit brought to Malmö 15 experts from Finland, Denmark, Belgium and Sweden, whose feedback about the presentations and program in general was excellent. The program of the study visit took place at the St. Mary’s Folk High School in Malmö’s Rosengård district.
The following local actors were involved in the program: Community Centre Apelgården, Saint Mary’s Folk High School, Merit Education, The NAD Project, RSFI, Hela Vägen project and Improve project.
