Following the publication of the original article [1], we were notified of the below corrections:

1) Page 2.

The following paragraph:

An intervention targeting teachers working with refugee youth is the In-service Teacher Training (INSETT) programme [32, 33], aiming to enhance teachers’ insights into how refugee experiences may affect young people’s psychosocial well-being and school functioning upon resettlement in a new country [29, 32]. It allows teachers to better understand and support young refugees at school through encouraging positive interethnic relationships and strengthening school belonging, as well as fostering supportive interrelationships with parents, caregivers or guardians to promote school involvement. In other words, INSETT seeks to make teachers and schools (more) ‘refugee competent’ [20]. No previous research has evaluated the INSETT programme in a school setting.

Should read:

An intervention targeting teachers working with refugee youth is the In-service Teacher Training (INSETT) programme [32, 33], aiming to strengthen teachers’ competence on how refugee experiences may affect school functioning and psychosocial wellbeing in youth upon resettlement in the new host country. [29, 32]. The programme enhances teachers’ ability to support young refugee students through promoting interethnic relationships with peers, school belonging, and supportive relationships between teachers and parents/caregivers [20]. No previous research has evaluated the INSETT programme in a school setting.

It runs over a period of 10–12 weeks and consists of three interrelated course modules. An essential part of the programme is an online course module to be completed individually, including eight sections totalling four to five hours of study. Topics include trauma and stress, the therapeutic window of tolerance, self-regulation and coping, and identity and belonging. Each section provides theory, case histories, exercises, and recommendations for further reading [33].
