Women Learning For Work – What Next? – Voices from the Grassroots

July 15 @ 11:00 - 12:30

The event will create a platform to share the learning from our Women Learning for Work project, which supported 795 learners from the most disadvantaged and minoritised migrant communities. As well as individually tailored advice and advocacy support for survivors of violence against women and girls, in the lifetime of the project, women learners attended 1034 project activities over three years . This included work based training courses, ESOL, ICT, awareness raising and parenting classes.

The project, known as Women Learning for Work Project, addressed the complex barriers Black and Minoritised women face and provided a ‘whole person’ approach and integrative learning methods through grassroots, community based learning hubs, which has proven to be the most effective route to migrant women’s learning.

During the unprecedented challenges brought on by the pandemic KMEWO, like many other grassroots specialist services, flexibly adapted its good practice to respond to the complex social needs of migrant communities in a rapid and effective way.

The event will be an opportunity to share and reflect on the past learning and the adaptive ways in response to Covid-19 , as well as an opportunity to discuss potentials for future good practice methods to support women’s learning and skills building, preparing them to the challenges of post COVID recovery . Thus this event will celebrate the tremendous resilience shown by specialist services during the crisis. In particular, it will provide an opportunity to share the learning from the rapid adjustments and innovations specialist services provided, and think about how we can take this learning further.
