The aims of the project

PASSAGE seeks to foster inclusive learning and quality education for newly-arrived students from the early stages of the integration process by adopting a two-fold approach that focuses on:

providing teachers with the much-needed tools and resources that will empower them to deal more effectively with systematic pedagogical challenges, and

designing and promoting a “role-model” programme through which current or former students of local schools can support the successful integration of newly-arrived students.
