To ask Her Majesty's Government whether and in what ways they are supporting vocational training and tertiary education for refugees living in camps throughout the world, pending their eventual resettlement.
The UK supports the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), which has recently developed a new education strategy for refugee children and adolescents. This focuses on providing access to quality education including secondary education and vocational training. Between 2012 and 2016 UNHCR and its partners will double the number of students attending tertiary education.
The UK also supports the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA), who provide a range of services, including vocational training and tertiary education, for Palestinian refugees in UNRWA camps.
