When going to be posted abroad by the MFA, a huge and exciting challenge awaits the family, and especially the accompanying partner. Many of the posted families will need to use much energy on ensuring the accompanying partner’s continued attachment to the labour market and independent career development.
It is an important part of the MFA’s family and partner policy that a posting becomes a positive experience for the entire family. Therefore, the MFA - as an integral part of this policy – offers accompanying partners professional assistance in the following areas:
•to seek a job abroad
•to develop their competencies in another direction during the posting
•to co-finance expenditure on programmes to develop their qualifications
•to seek a job after returning to Denmark
•to receive language training both before and during the posting
