We are a network of Further Education college staff, teachers and students working together to make education inclusive and empowering for all.
Together we raise awareness within Further Education of the issues facing people in the asylum system, offer specialised support and education, and contribute to a culture of welcome in the wider community.
A College of Sanctuary is a college that has gone above and beyond to support refugees and people seeking asylum. Through this national award, good practice is recognised and celebrated and other institutions are then encouraged to provide more inclusive education and support.
Please note: for our purposes, we are referring to Further Education (FE) Colleges. Sixth form colleges would be under Schools of Sanctuary.
To learn more about how a FE College can get recognition as a College of Sanctuary, please check our our new resource pack here.
