About this Project

Through our ‘East London Community Makers’ programme, we connect newly arrived migrant women with the opportunities they need to establish their chosen professions in the UK. If you’re unemployed or in a job that doesn’t fit your career aspirations, then we’re here to support you and help you realise your talent:

We provide a safe and comfortable learning environment in women only classes, where students can: learn and socialise with other women migrants, build confidence, and have shared experiences with others who can understand the challenges of transferring professional skills in a new country of residence

We'll invite you to take part in the Professional Skills Programme, where students can meet local migrant women who have successfully re-established their previous professions in the UK

We offer support with volunteering options and work experience in a variety of commercial and charitable settings

We offer relevant guidance and tailored individual career action planning

We also offer extensive flexible skills training
