Home from abroad

Many people who return to Norway after a stay abroad, where they have acquired new habits and attitudes, experience "reverse culture shock". Employees may feel that their new skills are not addressed or appreciated. Young people often face problems in school. The spouse, who wants to enter the labor market after having been unemployed for a period, will receive tools to make this process less frustrating and demanding, and leverage international experience.

We offer a "Return to Norway" seminar for newly repatriated families to help each individual tackle the challenges both of a social nature and career wise. In parallel we hold a seminar for children and adolescents, where the focus is put on their new social and academic life.
