Education for refugees
The number of displaced people is higher now than during the previous peak after the Second World War: more than 65 million people, or one out of every 113 people on Earth were displaced from their homes by conflict and persecution in 2015.
Smoothing the path for refugees to access education, accreditation and recognition of their previous qualifications in their new locations and homes is a massive and complex task but the benefits are correspondingly great, both for the individuals concerned and in terms of their contribution to society.
Pomegranate Global is developing projects to match spare capacity in existing language, vocational and academic courses to those refugees and asylum seekers who could benefit from them; and to apply the expertise of the international education sector to help address the structural challenges, such as mapping qualifications to degree pathways, supporting new overseas students to learn in a foreign language and different academic style, and credential recognition.
