The RJ4All International Institute and the Restoring Respect Project strategic partnership are pleased to offer this unique and highly interactive free e-course, aiming to empower migrants and refugees in their integration journey in their host country focusing on the UK, Italy, Greece, Spain and Cyprus.
The e-course has four modules, which aim to provide migrants and refugees with practical tools on how to: (a) settle (b) search, prepare and get a job (c) use Information Technology.
Ultimately, the e-course aims to restore respect in migrants and refugees’ profile by boosting their employability and enhancing their integration potential.
It has been prepared by the Erasmus+ Strategic Partnership comprising of the RJ4All International Institute (UK), EDRA (Greece), Foundation Altius (Spain), ICSE & Co (Italy) and CSI (Cyprus). The course convener is Prof. Theo Gavrielides. Prior to designing this ecourse, the partnership carried out thorough research that involved our target groups. The findings were published as part of the RRP e-book, which can be downloaded from here
The e-course can be paused as many times as needed. It takes approximately 10 non-stop hours to fully complete all modules and take the CPD test. Additional reading material are also provided for optional further learning and research.
We have included software that make the e-course accessible in various languages as well as for those with visual and hearing impairments.
Successful completion will lead to CPD (Continuous Professional Development) Certification (10 points).
