With education for the integration of migrants
The aim of the project was to provide information for social workers and to expand their knowledge regarding third-country foreigners arriving for long-term residence.
The main point of the project was a course in which colleagues working in various areas of social work are given basic knowledge about the main characteristics of migrants arriving in the country, the rights and duties assigned to the various legal residence titles. On the one hand, this facilitated the daily work of the professionals dealing with them, and on the other hand, it facilitated the social integration of migrants through access to the basic institutions of the host country.
We considered that the social workers participating in the training, as a direct target group (90 people), and by passing on their knowledge to their colleagues (indirect target group, approx. 900 people), will acquire knowledge that can be useful for their daily work, thus directly helping migrants successful integration.
