Client: Boundary Community School
Task: Improve barriers to learning
Skills: basic training 1:1 training IAG

The Boundary Community School is situated in Weavers Ward of Tower Hamlets. The area suffers from a high level of unemployment, educational under achievement, low literacy as well as low numeracy skills. The unemployment rate in Tower Hamlets is 8.8%, and the London average is 7.5%. People from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities and refugees including recent arrivals from Europe are increasingly likely to be unemployed and it has been identified that additional support is required to help them to secure and sustain employment.

This employment skills project is targeting 16 people in Tower Hamlets and will provide basic skills training, 1-2-1 information, advice and guidance and tackle the underlying issues which create barriers to employment and help these 16 individuals move closer to the labour market.
