Are you living in the Tampere City Region, and you are planning to stay in Finland? We can help to make your settling here easier, so you can feel more at home in Tampere. This may be just that stepping stone to Finnish society you needed.
The initial assessment is meant to help you find the services you need to support your integration. The service is for residents of Tampere City Region, who have lived in Finland for less than 3 years and are not customers of TE Services. The Employment and Economic Development Office (TE Services) conducts the initial assessment for people who are unemployed jobseekers.
