Migrant Training

IOM is committed to the principle that humane and orderly migration benefits migrants and society. As an intergovernmental body, IOM acts with its partners in the international community to: assist in meeting the operational challenges of migration; advance understanding of migration issues; encourage social and economic development through migration, and work towards effective respect of human dignity and the well-being of migrants. This document identifies the important issues that can be covered in their curricula and training methodology. As a methodology, a “learner-centred” approach is used. Skilled trainers directly involve participants and ensure that they take ownership of the classes. The training methodology is hands-on, meaning that participants are not simply told about life in their new country, but are given the opportunity to experience it through role-plays, case studies, problem-solving activities, games, debates, and other activities that require their full involvement.
