IOM UK Syrian Information Session

East Midlands Councils have organised a virtual Syrian Information Session over Wednesday 8th September and Thursday 9th September. This virtual training session will be hosted by IOM UK. 


This two day session will cover the history and background of Syria, Syrian cultural norms and practices, the services Syrians may be used to and their expectations around accessing those services, and the conditions Syrian refugees may face in the region before coming to the UK. Following part 1 of this session, there may be some brief reading and/or activity to prepare for part 2. This session will be participatory and rely heavily on participant engagement through case studies and discussion, therefore we highly encourage participants to prepare to have their cameras on during the session.


Part 1: 8 Sept 2021 14:00 – 16:00 London Time
Part 2: 9 Sept 2021 14:00 – 16:00 London Time

*please plan to attend both parts


The training cost is FREE.
