International Women's Day

On Thursday 10th March 2016 students of the course ESOL E2 Speaking and Listening class and their tutor Debora Sinclair Murray visited the organisation SimpleGifts: Unitarian Centre for Social Action in Bethnal Green.

Connected Careers

Connected Careers

Connected Careers was an opportunity for employers to deliver workshops that enabled learners to access the job market or to become successful entrepreneurs by teaching industry relevant skills.

Several workshops were delivered throughout the day and we asked employers to give bite sized chunks of wisdom to our learners after they delivered their sessions.

Our video resources can be used to highlight the need for employers to provide advice on the whole person approach to attaining career goals. They can also be used with students to show the importance of personal development alongside improving the academic skills necessary to be successful.
