This study explored educators' perceptions of preparatory education and integration training for immigrants in Finland. It included twelve semi-structured interviews of teachers working with adult or child immigrants. A thematic analysis identified: 1. Variances in students' knowledge, skill, and experience complicate integration; 2. Flexibility, the ability to alter classwork to suit students' needs, and the lack of preparatory support or relevant materials in diverse classrooms are problematic; 3. Adult immigrants’ perception as workers, not students, results in a disconnect between expectations. A holistic/ecological approach to addressing the challenges is required to support integration and inclusion better.
