Amiedu and the Ami Foundation have a long tradition of being a learning and developing organisation with a constant evolution path in accordance with changing customer needs. Our competence and excellence capability builds from a base of social responsibility. We have developed and provided services to support the unskilled and unemployed, provided qualification programmes and certificates and also supported immigration and integration. Amiedu supports the development of the competence base of organisational customers in order to fulfill their strategic objectives and targets. In all of this we have worked within an international and multicultural environment. Amiedu has strong commitments with a variety of business and work life parties supporting the Ministry of Educations and Culture programme of developing and serving the economy with effective skills and competence development services. Amiedu services development is conducted in accordance to the changing needs of the society, economy and work life. The international scope of Amiedu activities is based on work life expectations. We provide international and multicultural skills and competence development services for the organisations and individuals operating in the global environment. Immigration is a strong trend and multicultural work communities are an everyday phenomenon. Work communities are in a constant need of improving skills and competencies in working effectively in a diverse work environment. Organisations are more and more international in their operations.They need flexible,innovative,curious and open-minded people in their personnel. Amiedu is looking forward in meeting these challenges with a mobility programme supporting student and staff mobility. The programme has an increased volume with quality activities in order to further enhance the international and multicultural skills and competencies of all related parties. Amiedu has run international projects with an excellent track record. Prior to the LdV-IVT-On the go we coordinated the ESR-COFI to support work related immigration processes. Amiedu is a partner in the On the go- VETPRO which is a spin-off of the On the go-IVT supporting international and multicultural competencies at work environments on an ongoing basis. Our international partner network has expanded with the inclusion of our organisational and work life partnerships. Mobility is an expanding activity within Amiedu.

The effectiveness materializes in organisations with a clear focus in present or planned international actactivities.
