This account of asylum seekers and refugees in the UK and their education, training and employment is based on the academic and policy literature and empirical data from five major studies. It begins with the political context to seeking asylum in the UK and explores current policy and practice regarding education, training and employment of new migrants over the age of 16 and how policy affects their access to appropriate services. Drawing on extensive empirical research, it explores the education and training needs and aspirations of new migrants, their skills, qualifications and work experiences and how these relate to education, training and employment opportunities currently on offer in the UK. The perspectives of training providers and employers on working with new migrants are also examined. The authors conclude that the Government's laissez faire approach needs to be replaced with well targeted and resourced integration programmes. They present a model for developing an effective programme. With its combination of policy and literature analysis, up to the minute academic research and clearly presented policy recommendations, this book will be invaluable to policymakers, academics and service providers.
