A warm hello to you from the refugeeEd team. <3 We hope you have had a great month! Here is a snapshot of what we have been up to in April…
Our Community Teacher Training (CTT) Programme This month concluded the mentorship programme started in March with the graduates of the most recent CTT course. Many thanks to the participants and mentors, we saw a great exchange of learning and look forward to hearing how the mentees are progressing past the end of this course! We have also started running bespoke CTT sessions with our new partner in Lebanon, SalamLADC. We have covered topics such as the importance of play for children, mindfulness, differentiation, and teaching SEN pupils. It has been a pleasure working with these partners in our first CTT course outside of Greece! We wish the teachers all the best in their future practice.
Our Capacity Building Programme Firstly, we are thrilled to announce that we recently hosted in-house workshops with A Drop in the Ocean in Athens, Movement on the Ground in Samos, and IHA in Lagadika. These workshops focused on providing an introduction to teaching in a refugee context, as well as information about trauma and how it can affect the brain. We were pleased to see such great engagement and participation from the attendees, and we believe that these workshops will help to further our mission of providing education to those who need it most. In addition to our workshops, we have also had many calls with volunteers who are eager to help. We are working hard to match volunteers with organisations that need their support. If you are interested in volunteering, please email coordination@refugeeEd.com and we will do our best to find an opportunity that suits your skills and interests. As always, we are grateful for your continued support of our mission to provide education to refugees around the world. We believe that education is key to empowering refugees and helping them to rebuild their lives, and we are committed to doing everything we can to make this a reality. Trauma informed practice This workshop is an introduction to trauma and how it influences learning. Teaching through trauma and how you can support learners who have experienced trauma. It can be used as a refresher for those with experience and to share best practices for new teachers.
