Finnish for Foreigners are courses in the Finnish language. They are especially planned for immigrants who have residence permit and who do not get any other education in the Finnish language. We offer ten courses in Finnish as a second or foreign language.
The purpose and goal of subsidized work is to increase work experience, improve labor market readiness or attendance in education.

The goal of the period is:

- to improve life management and well-being
Subsidized work places are located in the different divisions of the city, private businesses and organizations.
