We safeguard and pass on rare trades.

Enterprises that employ apprentices in trades deemed as rare and in need of protection receive a larger teaching subsidy. Through the Secretariat for Rare and Protected Crafts (Sekretariatet for små og verneverdige fag, SSV), we work with trades that can lead to a craft certification.

We are able to offer:

information about trades and possibilities for training

  • references to possible craft enterprises
  • information about possibilities for training in neighbouring countries • updates on developments within various trades
  • assistance to enterprises seeking apprentices
  • assistance in finding examination boards
  • qualified advice to educational authorities
  • background information to journalists, students, and others seeking to write about the trades
