The project EDINA - EDucation of International Newly Arrived migrant pupils - has been developed by Emmanuelle le Pichon-Vorstman and Venhar Sariaslan. It brings together policy makers, schools and researchers from Finland (Helsinki), Belgium (Ghent) and The Netherlands (Rotterdam and Utrecht). The main objective of EDINA is to provide support to municipalities, schools and teachers in the reception and the integration into the school system of newcomer pupils.
This EDINA site wants to support teachers and schools with newcomer pupils (primary and secondary education) in their practice and policy. After all, successful care of these pupils is of great importance for the rest of their school career.
