Career guidance for newly arrived refugees and immigrants

According to the new Integration Act, refugees and immigrants have the right and/or obligation to carry out career guidance when they arrive in Norway. In this project, we examine how the offer of career guidance is organised, what strengths and weaknesses exist in the current models and how the offer can be further developed so that it best meets the needs of newly arrived refugees and immigrants.

The report will be based on a combination of qualitative and quantitative data. We will use two quantitative surveys and qualitative interviews in a selection of municipalities and career centres. The project will also provide an updated overview of research on career guidance for refugees in the Nordics, from 2016-2021.
