Education is a basic human right and should be accessible for all children. However, according to UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, 48 per cent of all school age refugee children are out of school. All EU Member States countries which have been experiencing massive influx of refugees during the last years, are facing the challenge of successfully integrating refugee children in their education systems. Assessing these children’s previous learning proves difficult in most cases.
The HOPEFUL project, aims at promoting the successful integration of refugee children in education and improving their school performance and implements its second action by designing a capacity building program for secondary school teachers and school counselors / advisors. The goal of CAPACITY BUILDING CURRICULUM FOR TEACHERS is to provide additional support to educators.
The methodology used in the program is based on learner-centered approaches that share daily personal experiences and helping them acquire knowledge, develop concepts and skills.
More specifically, this curriculum will equip participants with the necessary skills to:
- Know their role and responsibilities;
- Be able to better adjust their activities in order to facilitate the knowledge of their students;
- Feel empowered to implement the activities and methodology of the training for their students;
- Know how to use the curriculum as a resource material.
The curriculum is composed of three modules each having a specific focus. The modules are: “Team building activities”, “Intercultural dialogue” and “Experience sharing, culture and interculturality”.
