So many newcomers to this country have amazing skills and want to use those skills to start a new life here.
Unfortunately some people find it hard to know where to begin to convert their qualifications and may end up never using them. I feel that as a result we are poorer because of this.
Refugees into Teaching is a programme that provides support and advice to teachers from a refugee background who want to teach in the UK.
So if you are a UK qualified teacher, a teaching assistant or a teacher trainer in either primary or secondary education then here is your chance to be a mentor.
You will be trained and matched and given lots of support and guidance. You'll be expected to meet up once a fortnight over a three month period.
If this idea appeals to you please get register your interest here. If you know of a teacher who might be interested - please pass this on. If you would like a bit more information please feel free to get in touch by emailing the project manager Taku and he can give you all the details.
