Integration through education
“It’s great to be given the opportunity to learn a trade to be self-sufficient and feel at home in Denmark. I’m very outgoing and social, and being a bus driver means I’ll meet many people during the day.”
Mohamed Daadouche, Syrian refugee aged 36, Arriva bus driver intern
Refugee employment and training, Denmark
In 2017, 12 refugees enrolled in our two-year driver education training programme at our UCplus training school. Speaking Danish is key to integration, so trainees can also access Arriva language courses.
The training supports the Danish Government’s Integration Basic Education programme, helping refugees into the job market. After 20 weeks, students can start an Arriva internship and continue learning as they work.
We plan to take on more refugees in 2018: skilled, motivated employees to deliver our excellent services.
