Types of educational courses
Utbildning Nord offers a wide range of educational programmes and courses. We operate a queue system to our vocational courses. That means you are given a place as soon as one is available. We take in new students about once a month.
Utbildning Nord has these types of courses:
- Vocational courses
- Upper secondary school courses
- Company programmes and courses
Our vocational courses are designed for you who are seeking work and are registered at:
- The Swedish Public Employment Service (Arbetsförmedlingen) in Sweden
- The Employment and Economic Development Administration (Arbets- och näringsbyrån) in Finland
- The Labour and Welfare Administration (Arbeids- og velferdsforvaltningen) in Norway
It is they who decide whether or not you can take part in vocational training.
Those attending our school are from Sweden, Finland and Norway. Your course complies with the regulations and language of you home country. If you are from Norway, however, your training is often in Swedish.Through our vocational courses you can “get your foot in the door” of the labour market and therefore more easily find a job.
Upper secondary school courses
Övertorneå Municipality has decided that Utbildning Nord may run some of the vocational courses for the upper secondary school. With us you work as an upper secondary student alongside the other students. You are with us 2-3 days a week.Since we are a highly practically-oriented school, you occasionally get the chance to “go live” in some situations.
