Refugee Education UK (REUK) provides free webinar which is aimed at teachers and school (primary or secondary), but is also appropriate for individuals hosting refugees or anyone who wants to get some practical tools for supporting young refugees to flourish in education in the UK. Wednesday 26th April 2023 (4:00 - 5:15pm)
- Supporting Ukrainians in Schools
REUK will present for one hour and spend 15 minutes answering questions. Although each webinar has a particular country focus (enabling the participants to understand the educational and displacement contexts of particular refugees), the majority of the content (such as practical interventions) is directly applicable to young refugees from all backgrounds. Drawing on research and experience of working with young refugees and asylum seekers for over 12 years, REUK staff will:
provide an introduction to supporting refugee students who arrive in your school;
Outline the previous educational and displacement experiences of children and young people seeking safety in the UK;
Explain the educational implications for newly-arrived students with a focus on barriers to progress and achievement;
Outline practical strategies that you and your school can adopt to overcome these challenges;
Share details of free REUK and partner resources that can help you engage with refugee learners and develop your policies and practices.
