Knowledge Translation

to support early learning of refugee children and families

In this project site we share knowledge developed among community centres and hubs that support the settlement and early learning of refugee children and their families. Sharing knowledge provides an opportunity to understand more about what is already done, in addition to learning about new initiatives. In order to support this sharing, we collaborated with 60 people in 3 states, interviewed and workshopped with 21 centre and hub leaders, to create a Knowledge Translation Framework (KTF). The framework conceptualises the video pods produced with centre facilitators and hub leaders in metropolitan and regional areas across three states – New South Wales, Queensland and Victoria. The video pods also served as a resource for anyone starting a new centre or hub as well as being useful discussion starters for those working with refugee families and those studying to work in related areas such as social welfare, health, early childhood education and for primary school principals intending to host a hub or centre. The report provides detailed information on how the project was carried out and who contributed to it.
