Initial assessment of immigrants

We organise initial assessment meetings with immigrants in the Ostrobothnia area serviced by the TE Office (i.e. Vaasa, Kokkola, Pietarsaari, Närpiö, Kristiinankaupunki).

An initial assessment consists of an interview and determines the immigrants’ general integration abilities by looking at the following points:

  • reading and writing skills 
  • Finnish or Swedish language skills 
  • learning abilities 
  • education and work experience 
  • competences and other special skills 
  • employment and education goals 
  • life situation and service requirements
