National Upper Secondary Education in Seafood in Vardø

The Norwegian Ministry of Education and Research has approved an application from Finnmark County Council to establish the first national education program in seafood on upper secondary education level. There are at present no upper secondary education programs that provide specific competence in seafood.

A national education program on this level receives funding for operations and investments via the state budget and is open to applicants from the entire country.

The education program in Vardø will have a capacity of 45 pupils and will commence in the 2021/2022 school year.
