Building Bridges is a project delivered in partnership with Coventry City Council, CRMC and Positive Youth
The project is about supporting newly arrived migrants to Coventry to integrate, gain skills and imbed in the community.
The role of St Francis Employability is to deliver accredited skills based learning for people who do not have English as a first language AND to manage a volunteer placement for them to help improve English, confidence and employability.
The program really works? We take between 15 and 20 people, 4 times a year and many get jobs at the end of the course - all get a certificate and invaluable experience.
The course runs for 10 weeks and includes classroom based learning.
We are also able to offer extra ESOL support and IT lessons for our students AND there is a creche available to help those with children.
