When you change careers or expand your skills in order to obtain new work in a new area, this is known as career transition.
In order to receive support for career transition you can apply to SOKstiftelsen. Together with an adviser, you will then receive assistance in developing an action plan. This action plan is necessary in order to be granted active and financial support. If you already have a clear understanding or an idea of what you want to do, you should of course state this in your application.
If you are granted support by the foundation, your career transition can take place in different ways, based on your needs and the profession you wish to transition to.
