SESPM also works with the Learning and Work Institute to support local authorities helping refugees into employment. Together we created an Employment Guide. The guide was officially launched on March 26th 2019 at an event focusing on employability held in Reigate and attended by over 70 people. In addition to introducing the guide, the event featured presentations from the Home Office, Department for Work and Pensions, and case studies of successful employment initiatives taking place in Oxford and Reigate. Feedback from the event was very positive, with 91% of respondents felt that the day had fully achieved its stated aims and 94% stated that the topics were relevant to their work.
L&W in conjunction with Aspire, Oxford, have created this checklist to help organisations working with refugees on matters relating to ESOL and transition into employment.
