This is a joint project with Informa Modell-F and Migros Clubschule.

Its goal is to optimize the phase between the time of the arrival of refugees in Switzerland and the decision about their admission. In more detail, the idea is to educate refugees in basic skills in (the German) language and ICT. For the ICT part ECDL/ ICDL will be used with the additional benefit of international recognition that is of sustained value in either case, stay or leave. Besides of acquiring financial support some of the challenges faced by the project are the question of under who’s responsibility the refugees during the mentioned phase are and the intended shortening of the phase from 90 to 30 days. Current and promising plans are pilot projects in the Zurich area.
