The REVaLUE project

Funded by the EU until 2019, the REVaLUE project is collaborative project with partners from different countries including France, Italy, Hungary and Germany, representing organisations across Europe that work with migrants and refugees. It includes researching a methodology for assessing refugee/migrant previous experience in relation to local labour market competency requirements. This includes the Restart assessment tool, and curricula for refugee/migrants and frontline VCSE.

At ACH we focus on the competencies of the refugees we work with, rather than qualifications. REVaLUE enhances our reputation as an authority in this field of work.

The ARIVE Project  The ARIVE (Accepted, Resettled, Integrated, Valued, and Employed) project aims to research a methodology for determining a refugee/ migrants state of 'integratedness' by assessing the inhibiting factors, the state of current enabling factors and the necessary actions required to progress such individuals towards an enhanced state of integration. This includes the Integrass assessment tool, and curricula for refugee/migrants and frontline VCSE.  This project spans five European countries,

The SEESI Project 

The Strengthening Employment, Education and Employment Skills for Integrations - refugee, migrant and asylum seekers (SEESI) project aims mobilise a unique ‘Life(skills) before Language’ (LBL) approach to the language barrier of social-economic integration that refugees and migrants experience upon arrival in Europe. Through developing the skill-sets of ‘in-community’ Support Workers, who are often the first contact point for migrants and refugees, SEESI aims to revolutionize the socio-economic integration process throughout Europe. The SEESI Project aims to design a unique LBL training framework and curriculum which will change Support Workers role from helpful members of refugee/migrant communities into a dynamic new job role, responsible for an essential progression route for new refugees/migrants entering Europe, the local community and ultimately the labour market.
