Kursinhalt

Understand and support the social and linguistic needs of refugees

This course is designed to give volunteers an understanding of the backgrounds, current situations and needs of refugees from a wide range of contexts. The course provides strategies and techniques for supporting the diverse needs of refugees and has a specific focus on language support, which may be provided in formal or informal settings (e.g. classrooms or informal support groups). The course has been developed by a group of experts from Crisis Classroom and Cambridge English.

This course is designed for people either currently volunteering or planning to volunteer to support refugees and asylum seekers. The focus of the course is on providing appropriate linguistic support which takes account of the needs and future plans of diverse groups of refugees. Previous teaching experience will be helpful but is not essential.
