Our Courses

Welcome to the UK

This 4-session course helps recent arrivals in the UK to process their transition and adapt to life here. By exploring the roots of British culture, social norms, social etiquette, cultural values and transition, participants are equipped with the tools they need to make a good start to life in their new country. We can provide this course in English or in Arabic, and have successfully delivered it for the Syrian Resettlement project at Bristol City Council.

Supporting Refugees & Asylum Seekers

This course enables volunteers to contribute more effectively to the lives of those they are supporting. By understanding the reasons that refugees come to the UK, the challenges they face along the way as well as when they get here, and by looking at principles of cross-cultural interaction, volunteers will be better prepared for the role they are undertaking. We have delivered this training to voluntary organisations such as The Arches in Nottingham and community sponsorship groups such as Charis and Abide in Somerset and Devon.

Cultural Awareness

This programme helps people to understand and relate to people from different backgrounds. By reflecting on our own cultural influences, and by seeking to understand those of others, it helps to prepare people for cross-cultural experiences, for working in multicultural teams and for living in multicultural areas. We have delivered this training to individuals and for organisations including the Job Centre.
