  • IT Skills
  • Vocational Skills
  • Intercultural Communication
  • Services
  • Rights & Responsibilities

This project was developed with the help and experience of volunteer refugees for the use of refugees. Access the FREE RISE resources now!

Here’s some Feedback we’ve had already…

We’d like more though… feedback

UK Pilot Group Participants:

  • “Helpful to people who have low computer skills.”
  • “Have found the whole experience and having the resources very useful.”
  • “My confidence has increased since being part of the project and the resources will help me in my search for work.”

UK Pilot Trainer:

  • “The games, and equally importantly the written curriculum are an excellent, innovative way to engage individuals who are often isolated. As a trainer I am always searching for resources that guide and provide information in an interesting way. The whole package can be used in a flexible ‘dip in’ approach that suites my students. Having the trainer’s handbook gives trainers the opportunity to ‘get on’ with the teaching and learning without having to wade through masses of instructions. Will definitely use it!”

Irish Pilot Group Participants:

  • “This course has been good, I learnt a lot about job interviews, communication skills, proper emailing, a reason to learn and making decisions for an employment environment, proper official body language to be used in offices during the interviews and so much more. Brilliant course.”
  • “The RISE project course has been beneficial to me.  It has helped me attain skills in email, job interviews, digital skills and to be familiar with the Irish and EU statutory rights.”
