About the project

How is the "place-then-train" approach used in the work-qualification and employment of refugees and immigrants?

The "Place-then-train" approach or "supported employment" is a means of individual work support (IPS) and has recently been implemented in various forms of work-related measures. International research show examples of positive effects for groups with mental disorders. In a Norwegian context, this approach has been the subject of some research, particularly on the basis of measures that target vulnerable youth.

This study's main objective is to develop knowledge about the use of methods inspired by "place-then-train" perspective within the qualification and employment of immigrants in the health care sector across municipal programs.
