Employment Training project


This project is funded by the LBTH Mainstream grants and is part of our A.B.L.E. project.


We provide basic skills training and employment readiness courses  for local people who are presently economically inactive and looking to get into the job market. We have helped a number of people find work and many have seen a huge boost in their confidence and qualificiations through our training courses.


The project is coordinated by our Youth & Family Projects manager, Cathy Weir, assisted by Shahina Bibi.
