SBP Programmes & Training

SBP provides funding, transport, staff, training & resources to support refugee learning programmes.


We use resources to support as many people as we can, so SBP works  with other refugee organisations to build joint programmes wherever possible.

At the present time, we are no longer able to deliver programmes directly - due to CoVid19, funding and other issues.


We continue to support learning provision through partnerships in a range of situations for asylum seekers or settled refugees in the UK, Northern France, Northern Greece and the Greek islands...

Our training & support programmes help educators develop knowledge and skills relating to refugee education, self-regulation and teamwork.

We have developed a model curriculum for displaced persons which includes guidance on trauma-aware working and is built around psycho-social principles.

It is built around a simple and flexible core of themes for working with developing and developed learners - recognising that there will be different stages of cognitive development and differing levels of second or additional language acquisition. 

SBP Volunteer Register

Volunteering in the field with refugees is not right for everyone: it's rewarding, of course, but hard to cope with.

We can recommend signing up with Indigo Volunteers, who have a long and strong track record in placements
with good organisations in the field, including some of our current partners.

You can get more information by clicking here, to visit their website....






You can support SBP in other ways, with funding or as one of our UK Schools Ambassadors.

We provide video or face to face training for volunteers working with SBP, before deployment.

This covers a range of issues, including:

  • SBP core purpose and history of the organisation

  • SBP safeguarding policy and arrangements

  • SBP volunteer welfare and well-being

  • SBP programme objectives and local context

  • Arrangements for travel, accommodation and subsistence while working with us 


We also provide induction and continuous support for members our programme teams during active service, with a team lead in situ and online contact with senior members of the organisation. 

If you have any questions, feedback or suggestions relating to our volunteering programmes or training provision, we'd be glad to hear from you.
