LANGUAGE AND ACADEMIC SKILLS AND E-LEARNING RESOURCES PROJECT
This project is funded by the European Union and implemented by the British Council
By 2018 the “Language and Academic Skills and E-Learning Resources” project will have supported 3,100 displaced Syrian students and disadvantaged youth in Jordan, Lebanon and Syria to re-integrate into the higher education system.
This project will provide language training, academic readiness skills, coaching and distance education programmes. It will help displaced Syrians and disadvantaged youth who cannot access, or who have dropped out of formal education, to find new opportunities to continue their higher education.
This project will be implemented in two phases, from September 2015 till June 2017, language and academic skills courses will be delivered in English, French and German. International language testing systems will be used to assess the students’ language and academic skills. In the second phase, from January 2016 till August 2018, successful students will follow distance education programmes leading to internationally-recognised certificates. This will be supported by learning sessions delivered in several learning centres to facilitate access for students.
