‘Swedish for Immigrants’ (SFI) is the national language learning course offered for a minimum of two years to all immigrants in Sweden. The programme is compulsory for resettled refugees and their financial benefits can depend on attendance. In 2009, SFI added a vocational training component to the language training. The programme is the first of its kind in Sweden and is currently carried out in ten municipalities across Gävleborg. The Labour Market Training courses amount to 25 hours per week and are taken in addition to the required 15 hours of Swedish.
