The purpose of this study was to document and analyse the learning needs and issues
of adult refugees with low language and literacy skills by looking at how their prior
experiences and current contexts affect their educational participation and learning. In
addition, the study has sought to identify educational strategies for teaching these
learners and provide a teaching resource for other teachers based on the project’s
findings. The specific focus of the study was adult refugee learners with low-level
language and literacy skills currently enrolled in educational programmes with ELP.
