Description

Description

The aim of this module is to provide asylum and reception practitioners with the necessary knowledge and skills for the early identification of applicants for international protection who may be vulnerable and may have special needs to be addressed.
This module focuses on the concept of vulnerability in the asylum context and the main categories of potentially vulnerable applicants for international protection in line with the EU legal framework. It also addresses the most common indicators of special needs of applicants for international protection, how to identify these needs and the consequences of not identifying them.

 

LEARNING OUTCOMES

  1. Recognise how the concept of vulnerability applies in asylum contexts
  2. Recognise the categories and the main indicators of vulnerability in asylum contexts
  3. Identify persons with potential special needs in asylum contexts

 

The module is delivered online, enabling self-paced learning.
The assessment strategy is based on two assessments. The first assessment is knowledge based and is made up of multiple-choice questions. The second assessment is scenario based and is made up of a case study where learners need to identify the relevant indicators from a check list.
