Education is not given a high priority among homeless people, apart from some very short courses such as EDB, driving license, gardening etc. This is due to the fact that homeless live from "the hand to the mouth" characterized by insecurity and without long terms perspectives. Education can become relevant in later rehabilitation or re-education, but not while you are homeless, where you have many other things to do first.

The courses takes place at ordinary education-centres. In 1997 Overførstegården started a special day high school line in Gentofte for homeless alcoholics as supplement. Due to changes in the law the school was forced move to Copenhagen, but the activities are still carried on.
