by Victorian Foundation for Survivors of Torture.

Publisher: Parkville, Vic. Victorian Foundation for Survivors of Torture Inc. 2004Description: 107 p. ; ill PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Reprinted in 2007 Produced by The Victorian Foundation for Survivors of Torture Inc. Summary: The Guide aims to strengthen the capacity of school communities, at both primary and secondary levels, to promote a supportive school environment for refugee students and their families, to nurture the mental health and wellbeing of refugee students and to enhance their educational outcomes. It also promotes social connectedness between refugee families and the school community. The purpose of the Guide is to provide all staff (administrators, teachers and non-teaching personnel) with strategies to help refugee students overcome learning difficulties and adjust to a new environment. Intended for use at both primary and secondary levels, the Guide outlines strategies for the classroom and wider school programs. It has been designed as an easy-to-use reference tool, specifically tailored to enable schools to improve the delivery of education to these students. Because there is a variety of school settings available to refugee students, and a range of experience among schools and staff in teaching refugee students, the format of the Guide has been developed in such a way as to allow schools to identify and implement the most appropriate policies, programs and structures for their particular school environment.

"Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations."--T.p. verso.Summary: Upon arrival in Australia, refugees are directed to various organisations, including multicultural community organisations. Multicultural community organisations are well recognised for helping refugees become self-reliant; what is not fully recognised, however, is the contribution these organisations make to the development of refugees’ learning. This study sought to examine the extent to which literacy and numeracy provision occurs in multicultural community organisations serving three particular refugee groups: those from Iraq, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Sudan. Given their diverse experiences, backgrounds and reasons for fleeing their homelands, refugees in Australia clearly have a range of different needs. The authors highlight that multicultural community organisations work to meet these needs by creating networks and relationships with refugees. The nature of these organisations, and the informal learning environment they provide, can help refugees to learn skills needed for life in Australia as well as build networks with other non-government and government organisations.
