A daylong conference is being organised by the German Education Union (GEW) state branch in Bremen that will take place on 21 September 2017. The event is part of a local capacity building project led by the union State branch and supported by Education International (called “Teachers Organising For Quality Education Provision for Refugees”).

The conference primarily targets teachers and other education personnel and aims to look at the state and quality of education for refugees in the German federal State of Bremen. Up to 100 participants will attend a varied programme made up of talks and workshops. Topics include educators' intercultural competences, dealing with prejudices and best practice examples of teachers’ work in schools. Parallel workshops with the Refugees’ Council concerning their projects in schools and discussions with the Vocational Trades Council about how refugees can access apprenticeships and vocational training will be held during the conference.

Registration for the conference will be possible from early August by writing an email to GEW Bremen (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).
