From education to employment

New Project from the Circles Network Helped by European Social Fund

Unemployed disabled people residing in London were offered an innovative opportunity by the Circles Network to help increase their potential for employment.

At a recent launch about the free training and learning opportunities on offer, the Lord Mayor of Westminster commented: “I am absolutely delighted to have launched this event, it is very exciting to see an organisation so determined to recognise peoples skills and help them to realise their own potential. My congratulations to the organisation on being successful in securing ESF funding to be able to help those brave enough to take part.”

A Leaner Centred Programme

The 8 month learner-centred programme empowers people to build upon their experiences of living with a disability. Participants will get the chance to develop their life plans and the confidence and skills to fulfil them.

People who suffer from physical or sensory impairments, learning difficulties, enduring mental health differences and dyslexia are invited to apply and will be selected following an interview and will be offered individualised learning support.

The project is funded through the Learning and Skills Council (LSC) and the European Social Fund (ESF). Partners involved in the programme are Learndirect, South Thames College, AB Associates and the DARE foundation.
