Newsletter January 2017
The last months of 2016 was exciting but busy times at Folkeuniversitetet Øst. The focus and time was spent on recruiting and meeting potential candidates for the two pilot courses with scheduled startup date, 16th of January 2017. The process brought us in contact with so many different, interesting and motivated people and it’s been an exiting and privileged work to put together the two courses.
The first weeks of the course are already finished and it has been great fun to meet the participants again and to finally see the course brought to life. During their first two weeks of the VOLCANO pilot course the participants have learned more about the Norwegian legislation in this field, Norwegian work ethics and the Norwegian health sector in general. Our participants have also been visiting a nursing home where they could gain insight and ask questions about the institution and the routines practiced there. They will be visiting the nursing home once more during the course.
