When children with a mother tongue other than Danish move to Silkeborg Municipality with their family, the family is invited to a meeting at Kompetencecenter for Integration (the Competence Centre for Integration).
Here the family is introduced to the Danish school system and the child’s earlier schooling is clarified. An interpreter will always be present, and the family will have the opportunity to ask any questions they may have.
The child will hereafter either be referred to a special “welcome School” with international classes where children learn Danish as a second language from a beginner level, or offered supplementary teaching in Danish language at their local school. The teachers in the international classes have a special education in Danish as a second language.
