Irish Education Pack

23 March 2017
Teaching resource for CSPE students in Irish schools

This education pack is aimed at teachers in Irish schools who wish to familiarise their students with facts and information about refugees.

Its goal is to better inform young people about the reasons people flee and their rights under the law. The pack is designed for teachers of Civic, Social and Political Education, who are teaching students aged from 12 to 15. However, we hope it will serve as an easy-to-use teaching resource for secondary level students of all ages.

Teaching about refugee issues may require special sensitivity, especially where some students have a connection to the issue as refugees or migrants themselves. They may have experienced significant stress and grief because of their experiences, which teachers should be careful to consider in how they approach the subject.
