Assessing the Qualifications of Refugees: Best Practices and Guidelines

A presentation of the Canadian Information Centre for International Credentials (CICIC)’s report on assessing the qualifications of refugees. The report recommends alternative assessment approaches and assessment best practices and guidelines to support organizations in developing an alternative assessment process.
 
Presented via teleconference by Michael Ringuette, Coordinator of CICIC.
 
We invite you to learn about CICIC’s report and consider the opportunities and challenges of alternative qualification assessment for your organization.
 
This may be of interest to individuals from postsecondary education, regulatory bodies, Adult Learning Centres, Formal/ Informal Language Training organizations, Immigrant-serving agencies, Sector Councils, and employers.
