Young people seeking asylum, and those on Temporary Protection Visas (TPV) or Safe Haven Enterprise Visas (SHEV), face a range of barriers to accessing and remaining engaged in education and training pathways. While engagement in education has a significant impact on a young person's mental and physical health and their sense of purpose and participation in the community, their options are limited once they turn 18. Addressing this often relies on individual advocacy and creative solutions.

This teleconference provides an opportunity for:
  • Networking between workers and agencies supporting young asylum seekers and young refugees on TPVs or SHEVs across Australia
  • Sharing and promoting initiatives that support young people to continue engaging in education/training opportunities beyond the age of 18
  • Identifying any future advocacy priorities or opportunities.
