Purpose
  • Primary/Secondary Ed
  • Teacher training

Capacity building curriculum for teachers
A capacity building curriculum for extending and developing teachers' competences in the effective teaching of literacy, numeracy, and digital skills to refugee children, including through the use of ICT. The output will not only support building participating teachers’ capacities, but in the longer term will impact the academic performance of refugee and migrant students taught by those teachers.

Diagnostic tool for the assessment of literacy, numeracy and digital competences, gaps and needs of refugee pupils
The development of an innovative diagnostic tool for secondary school teachers to support them in accurately assessing the literacy, numeracy and digital competences, gaps and needs of secondary school age pupils with minimal native (and/or English) language skills, in the classes they teach. Accurate diagnostic assessment will enable teachers involved in refugee education to identify gaps and misconceptions, differentiate learning needs and make informed planning decisions so as to better address the actual needs of pupils and assist them in closing the gaps caused by interrupted education, thus reducing the chances of early school leaving.

Online platform for the training of teachers
The online learning portal as a one-stop-shop provides instant access to the material that has been developed, that will facilitate and promote collaborative learning activities and/or peer coaching, exchange of experiences and discussion on common issues of concern, problem solving, sharing of materials, and empowerment of teachers/educators working with refugee pupils among the partner countries.
