More and more refugees are either in work or education show fresh figures. The figures for 2018 were the best in ten years.

The figures from the Directorate of Integration and Diversity (IMDi) show that 55% of those who completed the introduction program for newly arrived immigrants went directly to work or education.

‘’The figures are the best in ten years and show that more people have the opportunity to take an education and secure lasting work. The Government’s strategy is clear that work and knowledge are the key to integration.

These results show that we are on the right track’’ said the Minister of Knowledge and Integration, Jan Tore Sanner of Høyre (H).

The increase is due to the fact that more people have switched to upper secondary school education than in previous years said the Ministry of Education and Research.
