Handbook for PDO Training

This new handbook provides support to trainers during Finland’s Pre-Departure Orientation (PDO) for quota refugees. PDO prepares refugees for their new life in Finland offering practical information on the country and supporting them to develop the skills and attitudes needed to succeed in their new environment.

The handbook provides trainers with key preparatory guidance for PDO, using the Moving to Finland workbook. It contains a variety of activities and handouts in English, Arabic and Swahili that can be used flexibly at training events in different contexts.

The handbook has been developed as part of the “Pre-Departure Orientation for Finland-bound Quota Refugees (FINCO) 2018–2021” project funded by the Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund of the European Union.
