Accessing refugee/migrant children’s prior learning – Available on COEUS the online modules for trainers/trainees

Education is a key element for refugee and migrant children’s social inclusion into host communities. Insufficient school capacity, language barriers and accessing migrant/refugee children’s prior learning have proven great challenges for the majority of the EU host countries during recent years.

European project CIRCLE supports the inclusion of newly arrived migrant/refugee primary and secondary school age children in education, by developing diagnostic tools, specifically designed for assessing their prior learning. These tools enable the assessment and validation of the level of knowledge of children with minimal native and/or English language skills.

In this context, Asociación Mar Violeta developed during April and May 2021 a series of training workshops with different schools in Asturias, both from Primary and Secondary Education, with the aim of teaching educators how to effectively use the tools that the partnership has developed.

CIRCLE – “Inclusion of Refugee Children in Education” aims to enhance access to education for migrant/refugee children, reduce their chances of early school leaving and promote their successful progression through the education system. By creating tools and policies that will allow education professionals to effectively assess and validate their prior learning, the project will enable the continuity of learning for newly arrived refugee/migrant children.
