On Tuesday 15 April, The Crown Princess Couple visited SFI Västerort in Tensta to find out about Swedish for immigrants (SFI) education.
SFI is a form of language teaching. The overall aim is that it should provide the right conditions for participation in Swedish society, leading to immigrants supporting themselves through work or studies. The education therefore has a clear focus on students' future work.
During the visit to the school in Tensta, The Crown Princess Couple met students at two SFI groups and their teachers Nadja Löfving Pavlovic, Linda Furuby and Ulrika Wimmercranz.
The Crown Princess Couple also found out about SFI and Swedish for professionals education from Administrative Director Charlotte Svensson, Head of SFI Stockholm Leif Styfberg and head teacher at SFI Västerort Tobias Fannkvist.
The visit concluded with Leif Styfberg and coordinator Carin Larsson explaining about the social orientation offered to SFI students through the Centre for Social Orientation.
