Promising Practices in Refugee Education

Promising Practices in Refugee Education is a joint initiative of Save the Children, UNHCR and Pearson.

Launched in March 2017, the initiative set out to identify, document and promote innovative ways to effectively reach refugee children and young people with quality educational opportunities. This report synthesises the key findings and lessons learned from across more than twenty projects that were selected as part of the initiative. Projects have been grouped under one or more of six themes: Equity, Access, Learning, Wellbeing, Technology and System strengthening.

Those projects and the experience of implementing partners have been used to identify ten recommendations, grouped under three overarching pillars, aimed at improving refugee education policy and practice.

Approaching the immediate crisis with a long-term perspective
 1. Strengthen inclusive national systems
 2. Commit to predictable multi-year funding for education programming and research in refugee responses
 3. Improve collaboration and develop innovative partnerships 

Understanding different contexts and meeting distinct needs
 4. Adopt user-centred design and empowering approaches
 5. Establish diverse pathways that meet distinct needs
 6. Use sp ace and infrastructure creatively

Improving outcomes for all
 7. Support teachers to help ensure quality
 8. Prioritise both learning and well-being
 9. Use technology as an enabling tool in pursuit of education outcomes
10. Build a robust evidencebase
