Skills development for professionals

Skills development of professionals is an important and natural task for Linnaeus University. When you are looking for further qualification or in-service training for your company or organisation, feel free to contact us and we will tell you more.

We call it professional education. You may call it skills development, further education, staff development, skills management, inspiration, change management or conversion. Regardless of what terminology is used, Linnaeus University can contribute in the process.

Our forms of professional education

  • tailor-made education for your company or organisation.
  • courses and programmes that are already part of our course selection but which can be offered on different conditions and with a specific employer.
  • further education and in-service training within the profession in order to update the professional skills and knowledge.
  • in-service training in order to secure licenses, certificates and diplomas within specific professions.
  • in-service training as part of a conversion process.
  • contract educations can generate higher education credits – if that is an expressed desire from you as an employer.
  • contract educations can be offered at the university in Växjö or Kalmar, as distance educations or at a city of your choice. We can also visit you and your company with a specially-designed education.

Our profile areas

Each year we offer thousands of courses. In order to offer you as a societal actor or interested party a way in to our extensive knowledge bank, we have divided our subjects into a number of profile areas.
