BAMER Women’s basic skills, training and employability project

Due to COVID-19 all of our projects are currently running at a limited capacity or altered focus. For more details of current project work please see the COVID-19 support page. 

What is it?

The project will tackle social isolation and cultural barriers in order to improve the skills and knowledge of marginalised, vulnerable BAMER women in Tameside. It aims to empower women to increase their ability to access employment opportunities and to work with partners to raise women’s awareness of the different routes into future employment.

 Who is it for?

The training and employability packages are available to the BAME women of Tameside.

We will do this by offering:

  • Training & Learning Opportunities: Basic skills development and accredited learning opportunities including ESOL, Confidence building and Community Interpreting.
  • Employment readiness Support: one to one support will be offered by learning mentors to help women on their journey towards future employment. Group learning hubs and interactive workshops will be delivered  for women to come together, learn together help each other and establish support networks.  These will include skills assessments, job search, completing application forms, mock interviews, role plays, presenting at interviews, process of job applications from both viewpoint of applicant and employer.
