Project description

The project responds to a problem common in Poland - limited preparedness of Polish schools to accept and educate foreign pupils. It is designed to improve qualifications of Polish teachers to respond to the needs of refugee children (and other migrant children) and provide them with real access to quality education.

Project goals

The main aim of the project is to improve the quality of education provided to refugee pupils. This is to be achieved through:
  • giving the teaches basic knowledge on refugees - the phenomenon as such, and also on their psycho-social condition in the country of exile,
  • providing the teachers with tools helpful in working with multicultural environment.

The role of PFM in the project is to address the first of those two aims.

Activities

The activities under this project include a series of six workshops for teachers and school managers, as well as an online support system for the participants - to enable exchange of competence between schools and teachers as well as to provide the teachers with individual advice and counselling.

Results

The result of the project is a group of at least 130 teachers, who receive both theoretical knowledge as well as practical skills relevant when working with refugee children.

Another result is making it possible for the teachers to meet and exchange experiences. Thanks to the online follow up it is important for the schools hosting foreign children not to feel alone and isolated.
