As part of COSLA’s work with the Home Office in supporting refugee resettlement in Scotland we are holding an ESOL Learning Event on 11 June.
We are welcoming tutors and teachers who are involved in the Vulnerable Persons Resettlement Scheme (SVPRS) to participate.
The event aims to give practical advice for dealing with this cohort in the classroom, through a series of interactive workshops. Themes will include: dealing with the effects of trauma in the classroom and its impact on the learning process; tried and tested methods in teaching literacies; and peer learning & innovative practice. Importantly there will be opportunities for attendees to network and share their experiences of their SVPRS work to date.
The event will be streamed live (and free) on a webcast via your browser and a link will be distributed nearer the time. Please select the webinar option on Eventbrite if you wish to receive the link.
Attending the event at our conference centre is also free but ticketed, owing to limited capacity. All attendees must register in advance. If there is a waiting list we may ask organisations to consider sending only a couple of attendees, while the others enjoy the webcast, and regrettably priority for in-person attendance will be given to those working directly on the SVPRS.
Talks will be recorded to watch after the event.
Please share the registration link (below) with any individuals who might benefit from this event.
