Occupational SFI (Swedish For Immigrants)

Occupational SFI is Swedish education programme with a special focus on professional language learning. Occupational SFI allows immigrants to quickly start working while learning Swedish.  

Occupational SFI also provides an opportunity to learn how the labour market works in Sweden and to provide guidance to migrants in finding employment in their host country. The aim is to shorten the time that migrants are seeking employment or entrepreneurship by providing them with language support.

The courses start at different levels in Swedish and cover a wide range of professions; for example bakery, bus driver, calculation for shops and cafes, car, car and bicycle mechanic and working in restaurants. Participation is free of charge.
