This project is funded by UNICEF and it will be implemented by a partnership of Greek Universities (including the University of Patras) led by the University of Thessaly.

The main aim of the project is to train teachers in DYEP, ZEP, mainstream and intercultural schools, as well as educators in non-formal education, school principals and policy makers in the regions of Thessaly, Epirus and Crete. Due to the growing needs of refugee education in Greece, training will cover a wide range of fields and skills development. Special emphasis will be placed on differentiated teaching and learning, as it is one of the very promising roads to inclusion and equity in education.

On 8 and 9 of December 2018 the first cohort of trainees attended a two day workshop on refugee mobility and intercultural education.
