Stronger together

The project Integration and Experience Expert - Companion to Successful Employment of Immigrants is being developed under the Nordplus Adult Programme. Project Number: NPAD-2023/10009. Participating countries: Finland, Lithuania and Sweden.

The project addresses issues concerning both immigrants and service providers and promotes the acquisition of experience-based knowledge, which is essential for developing services, changing attitudes, and fostering an understanding of the challenges people encounter throughout their lifespans.

The project's aim is to train international individuals residing in project countries who already possess some background in integration and experience, enabling them to become highly professional Integration and Experience Experts. With practical hands-on experience, they will be equipped to work directly and closely with immigrants and refugees using the available tools, knowledge, and their personal experiences.

Throughout the project, a methodology and course will be developed and piloted. The course structure will be based on the Integration-Employment-Wellbeing framework and will be tailored to individuals with their unique immigrant experiences. Blended course materials will be developed and tested in the partner countries. Additionally, the project will establish an international virtual community of Integration and Experience Experts, connecting experts from the participating countries to share their experiences and expertise.
