Initial assessment and the integration plan
The purpose of the initial assessment is to find out what type of services could best support your integration and employment. If you would like to find a job, ask for an initial assessment at a TE Office.
The initial assessment may include
- an initial interview
- a test of your language skills
- an assessment of your other skills.
You will work together with the TE Office or the local authorities to draw up your integration plan. This plan will set out the services you will need to support your integration and employment. The plan could contain participation in integration training, a course in Finnish or Swedish, other education or training, labour market training or a work try-out.
Integration training is an important part of your integration. Integration training will give you skills that will help you get into working life and further education and training. To receive unemployment benefit, you must take the initial assessment and participate in integration training.
