We’re pleased that the NALDIC BerksHants RIG is going to co-host a webinar together with Refugee Education UK to help schools meet the needs of Afghan students from asylum seeking and refugee backgrounds. A very topical subject especially for regions involved in the settlement of this population.

In this free online webinar aimed at teachers and school staff, we will present an introduction to supporting Afghan students that arrive in your school.

In their presentations, Hannah Elwyn from Refugee Education UK, and colleagues will draw from recent research on the displacement of young Afghans to explain the educational implications for students with a focus on barriers to their progress and achievement.

They will also outline practical strategies schools/teachers can adopt to overcome these challenges and share details of their existing and latest resources that can help schools engage with Afghan families and develop their policies and practices.

This webinar will include:

An introduction to Refugee Education UK
An overview of the challenges facing young Afghan students
A presentation of suggested strategies and resources to overcome these challenges
Q & A.
