All young people have the right to access education. This workshop explores ways in which social inclusion can contribute to the wellbeing, education and pathways of young people from refugee backgrounds with disrupted education. Participants will examine a social inclusion framework and share strategies schools are employing to support young people within and beyond the classroom.

Content includes:

  • An exploration of a social inclusion framework and how it relates to recovery from trauma for senior students of refugee backgrounds; and
  • Sharing of strategies and programs employed by schools to support senior students of refugee backgrounds.

Suitable for
Teachers, student welfare co-ordinators; youth & community workers and anyone who supports young people from refugee backgrounds in an education setting who have experienced disrupted education.


Participants should have completed ‘School’s in for Refugees’ or ‘Refugee and Asylum Seeker Experiences’ or equivalent.

If you have considerable experience working with people in schools from refugee backgrounds and wish to apply for an exemption for the pre-requisite, please contact Greg Gow via email:
