Adult College of Barking & Dagenham grant funding for new ESOL for Parents Programme

After successful completion of his 12-week programme funded by the L&Q Foundation‘s Place Makers Fund, in which 25 students attended weekly, Pierre Epoh Moudio has been granted £2.5K funding for another ESOL for Parents Programme starting 5th June 2021 from the Adult College of Barking & Dagenham!

Thank you teacher! Thank you for all that you are doing for us with your words and because you show that I am reaching my goals of learning English. Thank you so much for getting me out of my dark hole.

The new programme

The programme will start on Saturday 5 June 2021 and will end on Saturday 7 August 2021. The lessons will be 2.5 hours once a week over 10 weeks. 

It will be delivered online via Zoom and support will be provided for those who have never used the Zoom meeting platform. All the students will have access to all the resources that will come in different forms i.e audio and pdf files. The programme boasts a variety of methods for learning including discussions, presentations, use of interactive materials, video, and student led projects. 

Students also have a major role to play in the choice of topics covered in the lessons and it will be based on their immediate needs. 

The programme is aimed at parents and carers who are frequently excluded from mainstream ESOL courses due to entrenched inequality and complex needs. The level of the students that the programme is aimed at is elementary.

Stratford Rotary Club Grants Pierre Epoh Moudio £500 For Volunteering Workshop

The Rotary Club in Stratford has recently granted resident steering group member, Pierre Epoh Moudio, with £500 to develop and run a workshop that improves access to services.

The main objective of Rotary is service — in the community, in the workplace, and throughout the world. This connects well with the work that Pierre has committed his life to; equipping others with the skills they need to better their lives, which he does through his ESOL for Parents Programme.

The grant allows for Pierre to widen his vision, providing holistic support to those in need. The money will be used to run a workshop on developing skills through volunteering. It is aimed at those residents who are unemployed and those who are employed but desire to change careers. 

Why its important?

The workshop will teach participants how to acquire more skills and experience, especially in a very competitive market where work experience is crucial when looking for a job. It will also provide guidance on how to land your ideal job.

For ESOL learners, particularly, volunteering would provide work experience, help them to make new friends and also practise English. It is clear that a key barrier to participants getting a job is their lack of experience and the workshop would provide some tips on how to overcome those difficulties. 

Volunteering helped me to get my first job in London, after several rejections and at times no response at all from companies I sent my CV to.

Giving back

Pierre kindly donated £50 to Thames Ward Community Project, he says, for believing in his project and giving him the appropriate support to enable the project to thrive.
