Description

Students from refugee backgrounds who arrive in Australia as teenagers have less time to develop literacy, numeracy and social skills before needing to make career and further study choices.

This workshop explores the ways in which schools can contribute to the education, wellbeing and pathways of senior secondary students from refugee backgrounds with disrupted education.

Workshop participants will examine a social inclusion framework and share strategies schools are employing to support young people within and beyond the classroom. Particular focus will be upon flexible pathways programs which enable a successful transition through the post-compulsory years to further education, training or employment.

Content includes:

  • An exploration of a social inclusion framework and how it relates to recovery from trauma for senior students of refugee backgrounds;
  • Sharing of strategies to scaffold and tailor workplace skills and careers education curriculums; and
  • Examples of flexible pathways programs to enable successful transitions.

Suitable for

Year 10-12 Coordinators, Careers staff, Teachers, Student Wellbeing Coordinators, Youth & Community Workers and anyone who supports young people from refugee and asylum seeker backgrounds in an education setting who have experienced disrupted education.
