Teacher Training Consultant, NRC Greece

In Greece, the reception and settlement conditions for Syrian and other refugees have deteriorated over the past 18 months due to the magnitude of the influx. Syrian and other vulnerable refugees, including children and youth, continue to face significant barriers to accessing basic rights, including access to quality education opportunities.
As of July 2016, there is no systematic provision of structured non-formal or formal education for the refugees in the camps in Macedonia, leaving some of those children and youth exposed to a risk of significant protection violations. A nation-wide assessment indicates that refugee children have missed an average 1,5 years of schooling due to displacement and war, and 1 in 5 refugee children have never been in school. The current lack of education provision in the refugee response is leading to unnecessary learning loss that is further liming the chances of sustainable continuation of education for asylum seekers, refugees and migrants, whether in Greece or elsewhere.
Syrian and other refugee children and youth also suffer the effects of protracted displacement, exposure to violence, family separation, chronic psychosocial distress and economic exploitation, affecting their ability to integrate. Besides illiteracy and heterogeneity of levels adds to the complexity of the situation and the challenges faced by the volunteer teachers.
In July, the Greek Ministry of Education has announced its intention to integrate refugee children into the public school system gradually. Humanitarian actors are expected to contribute from October 2016 to classroom installation in the camps and provision of education in native language during morning classes.
NRC aims at providing education to 600 refugee children between 7 and 15 in 3 camps in Macedonia, Greece. Teachers will be selected among the community of refugees based on their competences and past experience.
Through the provision of training sessions and individual coaching to 20 teachers, the trainer will ensure that refugee children receive high quality education in their mother tongue and take their psychosocial needs into account.
This should be achieved through:
  • Collaborative identification of learning and development needs of teachers
  • Designing, preparation and presentation of professional development workshops based on identified needs for teachers
  • Creation of an inclusive and welcoming learning environment
  • Collection and registration of daily records/statistics during training
  • Handling of security and logistic issues during training, including safekeeping and recording of all tools and materials at the training
