In this free, webinar, hosted by joint Chartered College of Teaching and NALDIC, Prof Joanna McIntyre and Amy Ashlee (RefugeeEdUK) will explore how refugee and asylum-seeking children can best be supported in schools. They will discuss the research evidence supporting the language and socio-emotional development of students who have recently arrived in the UK school system and how it translates into practical classroom strategies.

Refugee Education UKs mission is to equip young refugees to build positive futures by thriving in education. To achieve this, the organisation focuses on:
Education outcomes – Barriers to entry are real: we want all refugee children and young people to be able to access the level of education that’s right for them – from primary school through to university.
Education impact – Getting through the door is just the first step: we want all refugee children and young people to thrive in education, reach their academic potential and experience better social, emotional and mental health.
Education access – The long term picture matters: we want all refugee and asylum-seeking young people to have opportunities to use their education to create meaningful futures, through leadership and pathways to employment.
