Students go through numerous transition points upon arrival in a new country. A coordinated transition into a new educational setting, accompanied by a well-planned orientation program, will assist refugee students to make a successful start.
Education and Employment Pathways
Young refugees and their families may need support to understand the Australian education system, particularly the complex pathways in post compulsory education. Schools can provide this support in a number of ways including holding parent information sessions, with interpreters if necessary, where they can hear from Managed Individual Pathways (MIP) workers, career advisors, student welfare coordinators and others.
