Refugee education – Teaching and teacher training

WWEP activity: Teacher training / Psychosocial support

We are currently looking to expand upon the work to support our vision to provide access to quality education for refugees by providing support to organisations working with refugees throughout Europe. We deliver training on a range of subjects including teaching techniques, managing refugee education, humanitarian standards and principles, and psychosocial awareness. Our training encompasses a toolkit developed by the Council of Europe specifically designed to support refugee’s education across Europe.

One of our previous education initiatives for refugees focused on Serbia, which has acted as a humanitarian corridor and gateway for refugees seeking a better life in Europe. WWEP delivered training to education and teaching staff and volunteers from three NGO’s and advised on the set-up of a refugee education centre in Belgrade. We provided training and skills in a range of methodologies for teaching English as well as an introduction to psychosocial techniques to use in the classroom as well as for the staff to look after their own well-being.
