WOMEN’S LIVES LEEDS
Nari Ekta will support new migrant women for the Women’s Lives Leeds programme. Based on work we developed for community learning fund to improve people’s basic skills, the project will provide engagement activities and embedded support to empower women, reduce social isolation, build skills, confidence and ability to improve English skills. We intend to support 20 women in Leeds between November 17 and March 18, particularly targeting newly arrived women, who have experienced domestic violence, social isolation, cultural barriers (families not believing in women’s education and not allowed to be in mixed environment where male are present), rape, trafficking, FGM, and other forms of abuse both in their home country and in their new communities.
The “Stepping Stones” programme is funded through “The BIG Lottery”. It aims to support and engage over 60 non-traditional learners, learners who have been out of education for a long spell and support individuals from emerging communities to take up courses to fulfil their career aspiration.
6 short courses in English, Maths, ICT will run. Each course will run for 10 weeks in 2 .5 hrs blocks. Assessment of learners will take place in order to determine what support they need and what steps they need to take to fulfil their career ambition. The short courses are designed to offer them a taster in their chosen subject, get learners into a routine and an opportunity to develop key classroom etiquettes which are key attributes mainstream providers seek in offering a college course.
In addition to the courses, weekly social activities will run over 30 consecutive weeks (3 hours each week) to develop community bond, create new friendships and network amongst new and existing residents. This is integral in supporting those who have fled their own home and countries fearing war, discrimination and persecution.
ENGLISH MY WAY
We are delighted to announce another year of English My Way funding. The aim of the project was to improve language, communication, confidence, assertiveness, Information Technology and employability skills of 50 women from Ethnic Minority to progress to further education and employment.
