1. EMBEDDING AN ISOLATED TRAINING UNIT INTO A LANGUAGE COURSE
Sometimes it is interesting to approach one single issue with your target groups who are already attending a language or citizenship training course which you are currently involved in. In this case, our suggestion is to customise and embed one of the New Start training Units into your current course.
2. EMBEDDING ONE OR MORE MODULES INTO AN EXISTING TRAINING COURSE
Sometimes it is interesting to add a new module to your current migrants and refugees training course which might be in job searching, Life skills, employability training or skills recognition. In this case, our suggestion is to customise and embed the whole set of the New Start training Units in a Thematic area into your current course.
