Short vocational training programmes mainly for low skilled and skilled workers on the labour market.
The adult vocational training programmes (in Danish “arbejdsmarkedsuddannelser” or “AMU”) serve a triple purpose:
- To contribute to maintaining and improving the vocational skills and competences of the participants in accordance with the needs on the labour market and to furthering competence development of the participants
- To contribute to solving labour market restructuring and adaptation problems in accordance with the needs on the labour market in a short and a long term perspective
- To give adults the possibility of upgrading of competences for the labour market as well as personal competences through possibilities to obtain formal competence in vocational education and training.
The programmes primarily provide skills and competences directed towards specific sectors and job functions. It is a flexible system which aims at meeting current changes and needs for new skills and competences on the labour market. Employees may acquire new and updated skills and competences to keep their job or acquiring a better job and higher salary at the workplace.
Employees may also improve their possibility of getting another job prior to becoming unemployed. The adult vocational training programmes ensure that employers have staff with updated and relevant skills and competences.
Adult vocational training programmes have been developed for low skilled and skilled workers. Everybody may participate in adult vocational training programmes as long as they are residents or hold a job in Denmark:
The programmes are mainly provided for low skilled and skilled workers having a job. Workers and employers in private as well as public sector enterprises may participate in the programmes.
The unemployed and adults not part of the labour force may also participate in adult vocational training programmes, but the financing and management differ from other participants. The unemployed may have a combination of adult vocational training programmes of their own selection for a period of 6 weeks.
Immigrants and refugees may follow courses specifically developed for this group or they may combine and supplement normal adult vocational training programmes with introductory short training courses and work placement or courses in Danish. However, many immigrants and refugees with adequate Danish language skills participate in normal adult training programmes.
Employees with higher education diplomas may join a course together with low skilled and skilled colleagues, i.e. to up-skill all members of a working group.
