KMEWO’s Women Learning for Work Project is funded by the Big Lottery Reaching Community Fund, providing educational courses to women who face barriers such as;
- Language and/or cultural barriers
- Domestic Violence and other forms of Violence Against Women
- Lack of opportunities
- Lack of information
- Family / childcare responsibilities
- Immigration issues
Terms start each year in January , May, and September.
Assessments and exams to progress are held at beginning and the end of each term.
On completion of study with KMEWO there is an opportunity to move on to a more advanced level of study. KMEWO can refer clients to Hillcroft College (a women-only college) or other London-based colleges to study towards GCSEs and potentially progress on to university.
Anyone joining the programme will also have the opportunity to gain work experience either within KMEWO or elsewhere, enabling them to gain experience and to enter employment.
