Hub offers resources to support refugee education

A hub to support the education of refugees has been launched by the University of Nottingham in response to the increasing number of child refugees in Europe.

The Hub for European Refugee Education (HERE) offers a range of advice and expertise for policies and practices that help to integrate refugee children into education effectively.

The hub covers early childhood, formal schooling, and non-formal education and features a curated, searchable database of academic and non-academic resources on refugee education. The resources come from across the continent and have all been published since 2015. The hub also offers government and NGO reports that can support teachers, schools, local authorities, and others.

A hub network also offers online and offline activities to exchange knowledge and develop research and practice in the field.

Schools have long worked with refugee children and their families. In particular, an influx of refugees from Afghanistan and Ukraine has been seen in the past two years. Headteacher Update has published a number of articles in conjunction with charity The Bell Foundation offering advice and tips for supporting these pupils (see below). Recent articles include:
