Aims & objectives

The training course aims to provide participants with skills that are fundamental to their work with the theme support of refugees. A focus is here the dissemination of social, communicative, methodological and substantive skills and the acquisition of knowledge within these areas.
Another focus are on the sensitization of the participants with regard to encounter work for people with and without experience with refugees within the two countries, and on learning opportunities of civic commitment for refugees. Specifically, this aimed at securing of the basic needs, creation of contact moments (especially in the work with young people), as well as support of joint projects and activities. This will be made possible by the development and testing of own formats that are based on the respective individual skills and previous experiences of the participants. All participants is offered the chance of application of differentiated and diverse methods and enough time for talking and exchanging with the others to share their own experience in this topic, to reflect themselve and their new knowledge and methods to use them in their (professional) daily live. So the course will be a room for exercises and will provide impetus for future action in the field of refugee work. Through intensive professional exchange between the team, the participants and the lecturers a feedback of qualifications will take place. That means, it can be assumed that the management team will come through the imparting of specialistic and methodological knowledge and exercises into a dialogue or a trialogue with the participants, creating new knowledge formats, so it can be arise a mutual and joint training on all sides. Priority should be the opportunity to develop new social networks and integrate them into the work of the participants.

The 10-day bilateral training program "supporting refugees" scheduled in Magdeburg (Saxony-Anhalt) and Berlin from 19 to 28.06. 2016 aims to give the participating women and men from Germany and Jordan skills, which are fundamental for their work with the theme support and with displaced people.
