Teacher training to support refugee and migrant education in Serbia
The World Wide Education Project delivered a 6 day training course on humanitarian principles and teaching techniques to trained teachers, non-qualified teachers and layperson volunteers from three humanitarian organisations, and staff from the Serbian Ministry of Education, who are supporting refugee and migrant education in Serbia.

The organisations taking part in the training are:
The training was held on the 14th-21st March 2017 in Belgrade, Serbia, and was facilitated by WWEP founder, Simon Devine, with input on a range of topics by leading education and psychosocial professionals across the week. The training course also covered the Council of Europe’s toolkit for refugee education. This is the first time the toolkit had been used in such a setting and the findings from the training was reported back to the Council of Europe to help shape the toolkit so it is appropriate for Europe wide dissemination. WWEP continues to be involved in the development and delivery of the toolkit and was invited to Strasbourg to a meeting hosted by the Council of Europe with all member states in presence to share our findings.
We are now currently looking to support other similar organisations across Europe to raise the quality of refugee education. If your organisation could benefit from our training and support, please contact email@example.com
