The Renewal Programme's Training & Education project is of paramount importance to the community and the borough.
The project is aimed at individuals who may find a large education situation daunting or overwhelming; the Renewal Programme's primary aim is to encourage and enable people to achieve recognised qualifications and to progress to further/higher education and employment.
Our courses are available for adults over the age of 19, who are based within Newham, who possess little/no English, Maths and IT skills. This can often be combined with the individual not having English as a first language.
Our teachers support people to overcome these barriers, empowering them to enter further vocational training and to find employment. Individuals often want to just be able to support their families, such as helping their children with homework or to be able to engage with UK banking and legal services.
One example of how powerful our Training and Education project can be references to particular individuals, who had been living in Newham for over 40 years, without speaking English. With our support, encouragement and educational courses, they took the first steps to learn and transform their lives.
We believe it is vital that Newham residents have an understanding of the English language, and specific skills related to it, for them to be able to fully engage with the wider community.
Our teachers are patient, supportive and understanding of all situations, who all work incredibly hard to provide engaging and beneficial classes and courses.
