Multiculturalism – teacher's role in the integration process of immigrant children

Rating: 0/5


Migration is not a new phenomenon, but it is getting more relevant in our lives. Integration and multiculturalism are one of the most important elements for creating a diverse and open society. If we want to live in multi-cultural societies, it is important to teach our children how to be open-minded, tolerant and how to accept diversity. Kindergartens and schools need to cooperate in integrating immigrant children into educational system and society. Ensuring safe and encouraging multi-cultural environment is crucial for all children to develop their potentials. Strengthening values of multiculturalism and diversity can meaningfully contribute to personal development of all children (not only immigrant), their parents and teachers.


The course will equip participants with knowledge and skills for creating a multi-cultural environment in their organisations. Participants will learn how to understand different cultures and how to change stereotypes. Course will emphasize the role of teachers and their institutions in encouraging multi-cultural educational environment. Participants will get familiar with programme for successful integration of immigrant children into school system.
