The training programme draws on more than a decade of REUK’s research and practical experience supporting refugee children in UK schools, and the framework of ‘safety, belonging and success’ developed by Professor Joanna McIntyre, author of ‘Refugee Education: Theorising Practice in Schools’.

In this short introductory webinar, REUK and the University of Nottingham will outline:

  • the structure and progression of the training programme
  • who might benefit from the training
  • a brief overview of the 7 key themes addressed in the flexible and self-guided programme which include topics such as  English as an Additional Language for refugee children; accelerated learning and preparation for exams; psychosocial wellbeing and trauma; and progression to further study
  • how to access the training programme

There will then be time for a brief Q&A.
