PartnersLærdansk is the preferred partner of municipalities and the businesses for education in Danish language and culture. No partner is too big. No partner is too small.
A good investment
Regardless of the employee's education level and the company's industry, it is a good investment to educate your international employees in Danish. Not just the language, but the society and culture as well. A 360-degree view of the employee contributes to job satisfaction, work quality and retention.
Vestas. The wind turbine giant needs the world's leading specialists. At the beginning of 2014, they therefore invited 18 Japanese engineers and their families to Denmark. That requires hands-on support, and throughout 2014, Lærdansk helped Vestas welcome the Japanese families.
Danpo. The chicken giant provides extensive Danish language instruction for its foreign employees at the factories in Aars and Give. The language instruction is arranged in close collaboration with Lærdansk. Human resources consultant Mette Høiseth believes the effort will result in greater productivity and job satisfaction.
In-house at the universities
Danish universities with international ambitions know very well, that providing goal-oriented Danish language instruction for their international students and employees is a competitive parameter in attracting the best minds in the world to Denmark. Several of them therefore collaborate with Lærdansk.
Aarhus University. An in-house coordinator from Lærdansk is located here. She informs about, coordinates and arranges the course packages. The collaboration began in the summer of 2014 and is already a success. At the start of the school year in September 2015, more than 1,000 students registered for Danish courses.
University of Southern Denmark. The collaboration focuses on developing a language policy and a language package for the international employees. The solution is a customized combination of classroom instruction on campus, one-on-one instruction with a teacher online, and a language partner program.
