If you want further information about the amazing work they're doing, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We covered behaviour management, structuring sessions, early years methodology, using phonics to teach reading/writing, and tailoring adult ESL lessons in this context. It was very inspiring to spend a bit of time with our participants, learn from the inspiring work they're doing and share ideas, advice and experience.
We especially want to thank ECHO Hub Athens and Sindos Community Centre for providing a space for the workshops and for their kind support as well as Help Refugees for helping us arrange the training in Thessaloniki.
From refugeeEd we hope our contribution helps our attendees continue to build a good, empowering, inclusive education.
Watch this space for more workshops coming soon!
Let us know if there's anything you want to focus on in future workshops, or if you're interested in running a workshop yourself. In the meantime you can find resources to support teaching in this context on our website: https://www.refugeeed.com/resources
See you soon!
