Unaccompanied Asylum Seekers (UASC)

Many of our young people are unaccompanied asylum seekers or separated children.

 

Here you will find some useful links including  a series of videos and booklets about the Post 16 British Education System for Unaccompanied Asylum Seeking Children arriving in the UK. The information is provided in eight languages: English, Arabic, Dari, Kurdish, Pashto, Albanian, Amharic, and Ukrainian.

Note: These video have been created for those unable to access the booklet which provides the same information. Therefore no subtitles are included with the videos.

Barnet Virtual School also facilitate and run a UASC Working Group with various professionals from across the UK in order to keep developing and sharing best practice when supporting UASC.

If you'd like to get involved please don't hesitate to get in touch using the contact details below.

We also have a UASC Working Group Resource Map which showcases resources across the UK.

For further information or support, please contact the Virtual School by calling 0208 359 4534 or emailing  barnet.virtualschool@barnet.gov.uk
