A two-week “Newcomers Training” started at Joint Warfare Centre (JWC) on Tuesday, 18 August to welcome 45 new staff members and their families to Stavanger. The training aims to get newcomers up to speed as quickly as possible on JWC’s mission, organization and activities and to make it easier for them to integrate into the larger JWC community.
JWC's "2015 Welcome BBQ and Information Day" was held at Jåttå on Saturday, August 15, 2015. The aim of this annual event is threefold: 1) to allow us to meet newcomers to our community; 2) to allow us to "catch up" with each other after the summer leave period; and 3) to allow us the chance to obtain information on the numerous activities and services available to us in the local area.
