Mayor announces multi-million skills programme

Boris new Mayor Boris Johnson chose A4e’s Shepherd’s Bush location to announce a boost for skills training.

The Mayor announced a list of 32 recommended projects, including A4e in Shepherd’s Bush, that will benefit from £23 million total investment, a programme which is delivered through the London Development Agency (LDA), and is co-financed by the LDA and the European Social Fund.

More than 20,000 people across London are expected to benefit from the new programme and of those, 10,000 are expected to take up further training or jobs. A4e, along with the other successful recipients, will target people who haven’t successfully engaged with the mainstream welfare to work system and build on the knowledge and experience they have of working with people facing particular difficulties, including the long term unemployed, the newly unemployed lacking skills, refugees and the disabled. The personalised service will tailor the support to the individual, whether it is CV-writing help, interview training, skills acquisition or English language lessons.
