Getting started in Sweden

In February there was a kick-off meeting for the core trainers in the Swedish CONNEXT for inclusion. There is representation of professionals from different parts of the municipality working with newly arrived migrants and refugees, both youngsters and adults, which is a good platform for cooperation and dissemination of the work in the project. Here is a short introduction of the Swedish core trainers:
Petra and Sofia, teachers from the adult education department working with Swedish for immigrants.

Jenny and Anna-Maria from Värmland Tilsammans where they will develop new methods for Swedish for adult’s education.
