Axxell has about 2700 students that study at the 6 different departments of Axxell (Lappfjärd, Helsingforsregionen, Åbo, Pargas, Kimito, Karis, Ekenäs och Esbo). In addition to vocational training, Axxell in one of the biggest integration training providers for adult migrants. We have provided integration courses for adult immigrants for almost 20 years. Annually about 1600 adult immigrants study in Axxell, most of them studying Finnish language. Our region of operation covers the whole capital city area where approx. 50% of Finland immigrants live. A team of approx. 70 language and guidance teachers provide Finnish language training and career guidance for migrants in Axxell helping to integrate newcomers to Finnish society.
Our courses are organized in tight co-operation with authorities responsible of integration (labor administration, social workers, municipalities etc.) which gives us good opportunity to disseminate best practices developed during the partnership in our network. Our experts have been involved in  a national core curriculum development work which was coordinated by the National Board of Education and did set a new core curriculum for the integration training of adult migrants and also for illiterate migrants (2012). Training provided by Axxell has a strong connection with working life (and everyday life in general) and our aim is to strengthen this connection to enhance social inclusion by developing our methodologies by combining both formal and informal learning.

Oslo Voksenopplæring Skullerud

OSLO VOKSENOPPLÆRING SKULLERUD is an organisation working within the field of Adult Education, qualifying adult refugees and immigrants for life in Norway by teaching them Norwegian language and social sciences. One of our tasks, which require more attention and sometimes new skills, is to provide the ever increasing group of work immigrants from EEA training in Norwegian as a second language. The 'Life, All-In' project would come in good use for evaluating our methodological approaches to language learning with experiments in new methods, including TBLT, a method that can also strengthen the capabilities of informal learning.
We are teaching L2 (Norwegian as second language) to 800 refugees and work immigrants and have teachers with high skills motivated to find better and new ways of teaching to improve results and also to contribute with own experience.
