Video: Refugee teachers find work in Germany after training course

To mark International Migrants Day, we bring you a report from Germany, which saw a large number of migrants arrive in 2015. Last year, the University of Potsdam launched a pilot project entitled the "Refugee Teachers Program". Since then, about 50 teachers, including many Syrians, have been able to reconnect with their profession after accelerated German language and teacher training courses. Our correspondents followed one such teacher, Alaa, on a typical day working at a primary school.
