Slagelse Institute offers a Bachelors Professional degree in which a great part of the education is based on learning in praxis. One of the institutions connected to our Institute is rather unusual in that some 75% of its children have a non-Danish ethnic background. Such a high percentage is quite rare in Denmark. The area where the institution is located is characterised by many social problems, among the Danish as well as the 'minority' ethnic groups: despite these problems the institution has developed clear attitudes and very satisfied children and parents. We examine some of the elements of this satisfaction.
