In Country Cultural Training

Understand the training that refugees coming to the UK receive prior to departure

All refugees arriving through the Community Sponsorship programme will receive preparation training in their country of asylum prior to arriving in the UK.  This training is run by the International Organisation for Migration (IOM), takes place across 3 days and is delivered through a variety of methods. You will find it useful to understand what the family should know prior to arrival, but you should keep in mind that it's a lot of information to take in whilst you are preparing for resettlement! 

For arrivals in early 2021, the training delivered may operate slightly differently than anticipated with Covid-19 restrictions in place across the world.  

We also have access to the videos which families will see during their training and we can provide access to these.  Please contact us for access.
