Manpower Inc Work Placements - Refugee Action UK and Manpower Inc

Refugee Action, a UK charity, and Manpower Inc, an international employment agency, set up a work placement programme to give refugees an opportunity to get work experience in the UK and to develop their skills and knowledge for future employment. After applying to advertised placements, refugees can then be offered a real work context to use their reading, writing, verbal and listening skills. The unpaid placement is full-time, Monday to Friday for two weeks.

The Swedish Refugee quota

They are often called “quota refugees” but many prefer the label “UN refugees”. It also happens – consciously or unconsciously – that they are wrongly called “real refugees” in opposition to those who came to Sweden and sought asylum on their own. This is a matter of the approximately 1,900 people taken as part of the annual Swedish refugee quota and who have their residence permit prepared before entry.

Carlow Rohingya Resettlement Programme

This research report, on behalf of the County Carlow Development Board, aims to provide a systematic assessment and evaluation of the Carlow Rohingya Resettlement Programme. Data was collected to explore the opinions and inputs of relevant stakeholders in the area in order to provide useful feedback about the effectiveness and value of the project. It aims to qualitatively document the key learning from the programme, to highlight areas of success and achievement and to indicate areas in need of greater attention. In addition, it aims to assess the current level of need of the Rohingya community and to make recommendations for the future development of the Resettlement Programme based on the main findings of the research. It is intended that this document act as the first comprehensive account of all of the initiatives that took place in the first year of the Carlow Rohingya Resettlement Programme as well as contextualising the project within the most recent and relevant social framework.

Labour Market Training with SFI (Swedish for Immigrants) - project brochure

Labour Market Training with SFI (Swedish for Immigrants) is a model of that combines professional and vocational training with Swedish language-learning. The model has had notable success in the County of Gävleborg in terms of getting newcomers to Sweden into employment, enabling them to live independently and aiding their integration into Swedish society.

The training is run collaboratively by Gävleborg County Administrative Board, the Swedish Public Employment Service and the ten Municipal Boards within the County. The training is adapted to meet the needs of resettled refugees and other newcomers to Sweden, and is somewhat longer than the standard Swedish labour market training - 20-60 weeks depending on the professional area, with 25 hours of professional training and 15 hours of Swedish training every week.

Etude Biennale - Les acquis du projet européen 'Réseau pour l'Intégration des Réinstallés'

Le 4 février 2008, la France a signé un accord-cadre de coopération avec le HCR prévoyant la mise en place d’un programme national de réinstallation. Afin de ne pas peser sur le dispositif national d’accueil déjà largement saturé et de permettre aux réfugiés issus des programmes de réinstallation d’accéder à l’autonomie, le Réseau pour l’intégration des réinstallés, projet européen mené par France terre d’asile depuis 2010, développe une réponse adaptée aux parcours et aux besoins des réfugiés réinstallés et ce, à travers la gestion d’un parc de logements temporaires assortie à une prestation d’accompagnement spécifique. Cette Etude biennale offre un regard sur l’actualité de la réinstallation, en France et en Europe, et présente les principaux acquis du projet de Réseau pour l’intégration des réinstallés suite à ses deux premières années d’activité.
