The following resources have been developed as part of the (Re)claiming Social Capital project.

Pathways to Education (Audit)

The Pathways to Education resource is kindly hosted by the Refugee Council of Australia and was developed by the University of Newcastle as part of the (Re)Claiming Social Capital project.


In November and December, 2017, practitioner workshops were held in Brisbane, Sydney, Perth, Melbourne, Hobart, Adelaide and Canberra to disseminate the findings and resources from the project. Download the Students from Refugee Backgrounds: Pathways, Pedagogy and Practice slides here.

Assessment tasks

These English language teaching and learning tasks have been designed around the four ‘macro-skills’ of Speaking, Listening, Reading and Writing. They have been designed for classroom use with students who may be considering entering higher education and may be aligned with the outcomes of the Certificate III in Spoken and Written English or similar level of study.
