About the advice sheets
The advice sheets offer practical solutions for institutions and individuals to the challenges faced by young refugees during the transition through to further education (FE) and higher education (HE). From insufficient advice and guidance to bursaries to pastoral support, among other areas, the advice sheets lay out both challenges and solutions.
They are a must-read for anyone working in education for refugees and asylum-seekers.
About the research
The advice sheets are based on research from our partner Refugee Education UK (formerly Refugee Support Network), drawing on the experiences of more than 500 young refugees in the UK.
Building on our earlier report, Education for refugee and asylum seeking children: Access and equality in England, Scotland and Wales, this research specifically examines progression to FE and HE in the UK. The study:
- Addresses the gap in relevant research
- Builds on existing evidence
- Examines the factors that hinder and support refugee and asylum-seeking young people’s education progression in the UK
