Promising Practices in Refugee Education is a joint initiative of Save the Children, the world’s largest independent children’s rights organisation, UNHCR, the UN refugee agency, and Pearson, the world’s learning company. Launched in March 2017, the initiative set out to identify, document and promote innovative ways to effectively reach refugee children and young people with quality educational opportunities. This report synthesises the key findings and lessons learned from across more than twenty projects that were selected as part of the initiative. Projects have been grouped under one or more of six themes: equity, access, learning, wellbeing, technology, system strengthening. Those projects and the experience of implementing partners have been used to identify ten recommendations, grouped under three overarching pillars, aimed at improving refugee education policy and practice.
