Education for all

May 31, 2016


As part of the Looked After Children’s forum, we were pleased to offer a training opportunity for members last week.  The session was delivered by the Refugee Support Network, who work with young people affected by displacement and crisis, enabling them to access, remain and progress in education at all stages of their migration journey.  The discussions focused on the difficulties faced by young asylum seekers and refugees in their educational  progression, especially HE.  In understanding the differences between basic immigration statuses, colleagues left more informed about young people’s eligibility for student finance, home fee status, and other forms of support.  For further information, colleagues are encouraged to read the ‘Education for all’ guide produced by Article 26.
