Course description

For the spring term, training from EMAS continues to be a 'self-guided' offer, with a walk through of reading, reflection and activities to be undertaken independently, followed by a webinar where the key points will be discussed, questions answered and guidance given for individual situations.

The course materials will be sent out by email to anyone interested.

A course to support all teachers in schools as they welcome and teach refugees and asylum seekers. It will consist of self-guided learning (activities, quizzes, reading and reflection etc.) followed by a webinar to recap and address individual school issues.

The course will be presented by: Rebecca Reeve

Training objectives

We will be looking at:
• Defining terms and the Portsmouth Picture
• What may make it particularly hard for young refugees and asylum seekers to access learning
• Developing a whole school ethos of welcome and support
• What pupil progress may look like for refugees and asylum seekers, including assessment and target setting
• Teaching asylum seekers and refugees - strategies and resources

Learning outcomes

Teachers will have a clear understanding of the local context and of the additional barriers to learning that refugees and asylum seekers may face. They will also be able to identify what good provision in school looks like for refugees and asylum seekers.
