The significant increase in young migrant students over recent years presents new challenges in education. Our planned online workshops with teachers, academics, and other professionals to discuss the issues, and to demonstrate imaginative and innovative ways that teachers and professionals can work with migrant students, enabling them to fully participate in school communities and engage in learning.
The workshops will also encourage discussion and sharing of practice through interaction with education professionals from other schools and countries.

- shared information about the different aspects and activities of our project with schools.
