How Refugees are Reconnecting to Education

ReConnect works in partnership with UCL Institute of Education to support refugees into Higher Education through Reconnect to Education: Preparation for Higher Education Programme: includes academic writing, critical reading, presentations and ICT skills and familiarisation with teaching and learning practices of UK universities.

“The project had given me a new life and lots of options. Teaching is an inspirational career and very rewarding one. I am currently teaching GCSE biology, A Level biology and BTEC Level 3 applied science at a London College. Had the chance to be a Course Team Leader for 6 months. I am enjoying every minute of it.”
