Young refugees and asylum seekers are amongst the most vulnerable groups of children and young people in care. This is largely due to their experience of war and conflict, as well as adapting to a new environment, usually unable to speak English. This course will enable participants to make a distinction between refugees and asylum seekers, and address the misconceptions that are prevalent.
The main learning objectives of the course are as follows:
- To improve your understanding of the experiences and meaning of being an unaccompanied asylum-seeking or refugee child
- To explore the UK asylum-seeking process and legal framework
- To increase your awareness of the needs of asylum-seeking and refugee children
- To examine how to meet the needs of unaccompanied asylum-seeking and refugee children more effectively
This Course meets the Training, Support and Development standards as outlined in The Fostering Services (England) Regulations 2011 / 2013.
