New program launch – SDCN Academy: Unlock Sweden

New program launch – SDCN Academy: Unlock Sweden

On the 7th of March we launch a new program – SDCN Academy: Unlock Sweden! Space is limited so register your interest today.

Join this 5-week program where participants begin a personal and professional journey together!

Through Unlock Sweden, you will explore the cultural and historical layers of Swedish society, while reflecting on who you are and your place within Stockholm’s vibrant eco-system and developing the practical skills and resources to successfully navigate recruitment processes and land a job.

With a holistic approach in mind, the program is designed to provide the network, information, support, and training necessary to not only enter the Swedish labor market, but also to become more rooted in Stockholm – making it feel more like home.

Sessions will take place during the morning on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Friday.

Interested to learn more? Join us for one of the information sessions in February:
7 February : 13:30-14:15 (in-person at Stockholm Akademiska Forum)
8 February : 14:00-15:00 (online)

Ready to apply today?
Fill out this short application form.

The application deadline is 23:59 CET, 14 February 2023. We will notify you by 18 February if you have a place in the program.

SDCN Academy: Unlock Sweden is proudly presented by Stockholms Akademiska Forum, in partnership with The City of Stockholm & Invest Stockholm, and all 18 universities and higher education insitutions in Stockholm.

Please reach out to Philip Rohrer – [email protected] – with any questions you may have (see below for frequently asked questions)!

FAQ:
Do I need to be a member of Stockholm Dual Career Network to join? 
Yes, you need to be a spouse/partner of an employee at one of SDCN’s partner organizations, and join as a member.

Is it free to participate in SDCN Academy: Unlock Sweden?
Yes, the program is included in your SDCN member benefits.

Do I need to participate in the entire program?
Yes, the program has been designed with a holistic approach in mind. It is important that you participate in every session unless prohibited by illness or another urgent matter (or you land a job of course)!

Will you offer the program again?
Yes, the program will be offered again in the autumn.

I am considering starting a Swedish language course that takes place during the morning on the same days. Can I do both?
Nice! We think learning Swedish is vital to making Stockholm feel like home. That being said, we believe Unlock Sweden will serve as a good foundation in your transition to Stockholm. If possible, we recommend starting your Swedish course after the program.

I work at a company in Stockholm and would like to offer Unlock Sweden to the spouses of our employees. What should I do?
Exciting! Please contact Philip to start a conversation about partnering with SDCN.
