Exploring Education Pathways for
Young People Seeking Asylum
Young Refugees on TPVs and SHEVs
We want to hear from you!
MYAN Australia and RCOA would like to hear from you to help us understand better what interests you the most and to plan for the remaining two teleconferences of the year. We developed a short survey to hear your suggestions.
The survey results will inform our upcoming teleconference on 30th August 2018 as well as the final teleconference of the year in November.
Thank you to those who already filled the survey !
Please contact Derya Koksal, MYAN Policy and Advocacy Officer - email@example.com for any questions.
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.
