We are looking for
We are looking for promising practices within one or more of the following issues in the field of refugee education:
- Timeliness: The early provision of education in a refugee crisis, given that most refugee crises are protracted and many children miss out on years of education.
- Access: Practice that addresses the issue of access to good quality education in host countries. This includes access to formal and non-formal education.
- Quality: Practice that addresses the issue of the quality of education provided, including but not limited to teacher training, pedagogy, curriculum, assessment and certification.
- Protection: Practice that addresses issues of child protection, including overcoming protection barriers to education with an emphasis on community engagement, safe learning environments and physical, social and emotional well-being through education.
- Equity: Practice that targets and benefits the most marginalised within refugee groups.
- Data: Practice that collect and provide data, both quantitative and qualitative, on refugee education.
- System strengthening: Practice that builds on and enhances current systems for provision of education, or that help build new systems where they are entirely lacking.
Support for case-study production
Organisations selected will receive guidance and technical support in the production of their case-study. This will be composed of a case-study template and guidance document that will instruct organisations in content requirements. This will be supported by two or more webinars, firstly to familiarise organisations with the template and guidance and secondly to provide collective feedback on first drafts together with suggestions for improvement of the case study. Organisations will also be paired in a peer-to-peer exercise so that they can learn from each other and review each other’s work. Final case-studies and their summaries will be designed, printed and disseminated widely.
