A much better chance of finding work

Date posted: 08 Mar 2016

Finding a good job when they finish education will help break the cycle of poverty for many of our schoolchildren… it’s one of our major aims, of course.

We recognise that not all our kids will make it to secondary school, so we’ve ramped up our vocational training sessions for some our our older, less academic pupils. For them the priority is less about education and more about gaining some skills that will help them find work, or even an apprenticeship when they leave primary school.

Our new course combines daily practical training with basic maths, English, computer, money and life skills. The vocational training includes carpentry, tailoring with our tailor Sarah and traditional crafts with staff member Vicky. The boys in the picture have been making money boxes with one of the dads, Peter Mayeku.
