PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT FOR REFUGEES
Our mission to gain economic independence by acquiring a profession in the countries where refugees live
This project will be realized with the participation of 5 teachers, 1 Ministry of Education personnel and 8 students in order to make the economical independence by making profession in the countries where the refugees live.
The most important tool in preventing social problems caused by asylum seekers is education.This study visit is aimed at gathering and observing information for participating students and teachers to gain occupation for asylum seekers, take responsibility, and participate in all layers of the society. It is our job to make sure that these students do not have to depend on anyone for their lives.
Our school is a large school with 2760 students. It is located in a central district of Istanbul with easy access to the city. Due to its vocational high school level, it is preferred from the surrounding districts. It is a place where the families of the students from the Eastern and Southeastern Anatolia regions, where low income, particularly Syrian and Uyghur immigrants, often live. Students mainly prefer Electrical-Electronics and Chemistry departments.
The experience gained by teachers, will share with their colleagues when they come to Turkey.Our visiting students will be able to understand what needs to be done to solve the problems that asylum seekers meet. They will develop the host country. Syria is now devastated by war. Technical personnel will need more than anything. In this context, qualified electricians should be trained in the fields of electronics, chemistry, information and construction.
In our country, the Chambers of Tradesmen and Artisans are continuing to provide vocational courses. However, it is not enough. These students should be directed to the vocational high school in order to train technical staff. We would like to receive information in order to educate our students in industries such as biomedical, mechatronics, automation, robotics, automotive, nanotechnology, plastics industry. Experiences that we win in Europe will be applied in our country and our results of our observations will be transformed into a report and told to the authorities, NGOs, administrators, students, teachers and students. The information will be shared in the school magazine and web page and students will be informed.
Before the project was set up, our school met with families of refugee students in the fields of Electrical-Electronics and Chemistry, guidance teachers, theachers who came into their courses. The problems they encountered, their relationships with their colleagues, their interest in and relevance to the profession were assessed. A data bank was created. Below is a sample student group and the fields they read.

In this context, it is very important for refugee children to be an independent living, an individual who is useful to their families. For this reason, our teachers, our students, will have the opportunity to examine the information sources acquired by their families.
