This training has been developed to meet an acute need among teachers of English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) and related fields to build awareness of how trauma can affect students with refugee backgrounds, and what practical strategies teachers can employ to both mitigate the effects of this and begin to promote recovery and growth. Whilst being practical in focus, it is underpinned by a number of years of research by the University of Leicester’s Sanctuary Seekers’ Unit into trauma-informed pedagogy in the refugee ESOL classroom.
