Utbildning på grundskole- och gymnasienivå

Most jobs require you to have a basic education, and if you have an upper secondary school education this increases your chances of getting a job. Within the framework of our various support programmes you have the opportunity to extend your competence and skills.

Education contract (utbildningskontrakt)

If you are aged under 25, you can acquire upper secondary school competence with utbildningskontrakt. The education contract is an agreement between you, us and your home municipality. You study at Komvux or a People’s High School.

Education and training within the introduction programme (etableringsprogrammet)

When you participate in etableringsprogrammet, there are a number of different courses that you can take. This may for example be:

  • Basic or upper secondary education at Komvux or People’s High School. This training and education can give you basic eligibility for further studies.

Preparatory training for Komvux studies

You have the opportunity to get help in preparing for studies at basic or upper secondary level at Komvux. This may for example be:

  • Etableringskurs på folkhögskola. You study Swedish, often interspersed with study visits, work experience and other activities that prepare you for further studies or jobs.
  • Studiemotiverande kurs på folkhögskola. With activities for finding motivation, training in study techniques and with the focus on Swedish, English, mathematics and civic studies, you will be better equipped to continue studying.
