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 February…
Our Community Teacher Training (CTT) Programme
We had the last sessions of the 6-week CTT course that has been run in collaboration with Movement on the Ground Samos and Northern Lights Aid in Kavala. It was great to hear the trainees’ feedback of how they felt the course was useful and could help them in their future professional goals as well as in their immediate classes.
Here is some of their feedback in their own words:
“Everything was interesting and amazing”
“When I had this training, I see differences I see myself as professional, I see myself standing in front of the class. It means a lot to me, it has motivated me more”
“Many thing I learn from Dalia, she’s really good. How to become a teacher, how to be confidence in being a teacher and being responsible”
A huge thank you to Dalia, our trainer, for great sessions!
Participants receiving certificates at the end of the course
All the regular participants on the course will be starting the mentorship programme next month. They will have weekly mentoring sessions with one of our brilliant teacher trainers to further develop their teaching practice and start to relate what they learnt through the CTT course to their individual classes. We can’t wait to get started with this mentorship programme and see the mentees go from strength to strength in their teaching!
We are now in the process of setting up a new CTT programme with The Workshop in Serbia - check back next month to see how it is going!
We also ran a teacher training workshop on Teaching Displaced Communities with teachers from English Pour Tout le Monde (EPTLM). We had some interesting discussions and we wish the EPTLM teachers all the best for starting their classes!
Our Capacity Building Programme
New for 2023 we have developed a bank of ‘ready to go’ in-house workshops available for organisations to choose from. They are templates and adapted to the specific location prior to being delivered. We also have the capacity to lead these in Arabic if organisations have a team of Arabic speakers.
Trauma Informed Classroom strategies
Play with purpose - outdoor activities for children
Inclusion- what is it and how to create it
Teaching in a refugee context
We are also leading regular rolling workshops for organisations in the migration context.
Trauma informed practice
Introduction to teaching in the refugee context
This meets the challenge of volunteer turnover and as they are repeated all volunteers can attend again to refresh or if they are participating in the workshop for the first time they are receiving the same information as their colleagues.
Trauma Informed Practice
Wednesday 1st March
We aim to have at least one open workshop per month again to address the changing volunteer population but also to keep in touch and inform the volunteers and organisations.
