Free training to support schools in supporting refugee and asylum-seeking children and young people

The Healing Classrooms programme from International Rescue Committee (IRC) aims to support schools and educators to develop inclusive and nurturing learning spaces where refugee and asylum-seeking students can gain the necessary academic, social and emotional skills to develop their full potential.

The IRC offers free training sessions and resources to educators and schools supporting refugee and asylum-seeking students in the UK.

The IRC sun sessions online although there is an option for in-person sessions in certain circumstances. The course consists of three 1hr 30min sessions delivered weekly after school.

Oxfordshire's Virtual School is working closely with IRC - please revisit our website to check for newly uploaded resources and updates regarding future training opportunities.
