CALD Community of Practice (CoP)
In 2018 MYAN TAS, a program of Multicultural Youth Tasmania, hosted the CALD Community of Practice (CoP). The CoP is now being hosted by the Young Migrant English Program (YMEP) at TasTAFE for 2019. The core purpose of the CALD CoP is information sharing and collaboration for the purpose of providing informed advice to CALD students on their educational journeys. The CALD CoP is committed to improving pathways in to tertiary and vocational education for young people from refugee and migrant backgrounds, and is an inclusive and collaborative network which encourages community participation. The CALD CoP was formed in 2016 and hosted by the University of Tasmania for the first two years.
In 2017 MYT supported a video resource project ‘Migrant experiences of University Study’ developed by the CoP. The videos are designed to help students prepare for university study. They feature young people from refugee and migrant backgrounds sharing insights about their experiences of tertiary study, giving advice to others about what to expect, and how to prepare. The four videos can be viewed below:
