Poor English skills, lack of computer literacy and adaptation problems to the UK amongst new migrant families lead to many problems including unemployment, disenfranchisement, and the issues associated with non-assimilation into UK culture. As well as these broad social problems, we also know from speaking to our community members that there are even specific problems related to the parent/child relationship caused by children growing up in UK culture and speaking English whilst the parent cannot. These range from practical problems such as dealing with school and teachers etc. to wider issues of misunderstanding aspects of British culture. By providing English, ICT and Employability classes which also include practical lessons on life in the UK, we aim to counter these problems for at least 40 unemployed adults, especially immigrants, who will gain the necessary skills to chase suitable job opportunities and contribute to the local economy as well as wider economic aims of the UK.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Our project will increase the opportunities our unemployed and mostly immigrant community members have in their lives in the UK: - Increased opportunities for seeking employment - Increased opportunities for cultural interaction beyond their own ethnicity - Increased opportunities for further learning, either in continued ESOL classes or in other forms of adult education - More confidence in dealing with their children growing up in UK society We also know that many new migrants to the UK struggle to feel a sense of community and find it hard to meet people outside their own ethnic background. As well as giving them the ability to better communicate in English, the classes we provide will bring together new migrants from a range of backgrounds. This will give them the opportunity to meet and communicate with people outside their own background on a level playing field as well as the opportunity to share their experiences.
