We've loved seeing institutional change resulting from in-house training. When organisations have brought staff together to learn, they've come away with an effective joined-up approach to supporting refugee learners.
"This was one of the best courses I have attend online with very engaging content and lots of time to reflect and discuss. It has really improved my knowledge and confidence in this area. I particularly liked the variety of attendees and the fact time was given to chat about what each of us did through the course, so it was also good networking."
"Solent University is currently working towards becoming a University of Sanctuary. To support us in our ambition, we wanted to ensure our key staff had the knowledge required to create a welcome culture.
REUK’s Access to HE training provided us with an invaluable insight into how to support refugees and asylum seekers in HE. From learning the basic terminology to challenging our thoughts on what we plan to put in place, the course was of real value. We are now in a much better position to support refugees and asylum seekers accessing HE at Solent University.
The course was excellent value for money and still took the form of an interactive and participatory workshop, even being run virtually."
Robert Wayman, Solent University
Access to higher education (HE) training
Our in-person and virtual training upskills other professionals to promote young refugees' educational access and outcomes in their context.
A cost-effective option for multiple participants, our in-house access to HE training has proved a hit with local authorities and universities who want to embed learning and best practice across teams and departments. Contact Katie to discuss your needs and how REUK can help.
We deliver bespoke in-house HE training to ensure that groups get the tailored information they need for their particular context.
These regular interactive sessions (currently online) are ideal for individual representatives from institutions and organisations. You'll learn from REUK's expert team, young people with lived experience of forced migration and other participants from the refugee and education sectors. Book your place on one of our upcoming sessions and sign up to our HE mailing list to hear about new dates as they're publicised.
We frequently run access to HE training sessions for mixed groups of teachers, social workers, university and NGO staff.
