Foreign Exchange Workers: Training Abroad


Work Placement Abroad








In December of 2013 Chase Construction NW, Inc. roofed a home in Puyallup, 
WA . Throughout the process we built a great relationship with the homeowner who had a son living in Denmark. He was looking for work in the states as a part of his work placement abroad program through the Danish PiU-Programme. We thought it would be a great opportunity to support foreign exchange workers and offered Alex employment with Chase Construction NW, Inc. Below is a little information about the Danish PiU Programme and what work placement abroad offers its students.


Education and Training with the PiU Programme

In 1992 the Danish Parliament passed legislation to the effect that young Danes in initial vocational training could have periods of work placement abroad recognised as an integral part of their course.

A work placement abroad gives the young person qualifications that are invaluable assets in today’s economic and industrial climate: communicative skills in foreign languages, intimate knowledge of foreign markets, valuable contacts and in many instances new technological insights. Add to this the personal development of a young person away from home for a long period: increased independence, self-reliance, tolerance of others with a different background, problem-solving skills, initiative, ability to assume responsibility etc.
