This interactive training session is ideal for anyone who wants to grow in knowledge and confidence to support young refugees and asylum seekers to access HE. You’ll learn with and from REUK’s expert team, young people with lived experience of forced migration and other participants from the refugee and education sectors. In this training session you will:
· Learn about immigration statuses and terminology. This training will enable you to understand and confidently use asylum and refugee terminology, helping you get to grips with different immigration statuses and their impact on access to HE.
· Learn how immigration status impacts young people’s educational access, entitlements and thriving. This training will give you a strong understanding of young refugees’ and asylum seekers’ barriers to HE and you’ll come away knowing who’s entitled to what when it comes to student finance and home fees.
· Learn how to apply this knowledge to your role and context. This training will upskill you in the educational, financial and psychosocial support options for young asylum seekers and refugees as they access HE and start at university.
