FREE Training Opportunities at UCRA

 UCRA is a London based registered charity providing various services to the ethnic minorities in London.  Our services operate from various sites including Croydon, Brent, Kingston and Haringey. Our services include provision of basic information, advice, guidance to enable newly arrived communities find their way about, NVQ training in Health and social care, customer service, business administration, ICT for Users, literacy, numeracy and English for speakers of other languages.   All our training programmes are accredited by City and Guilds, ILM or EDI International or Trinity College London.

The UK Border Agency has made important changes to the ESOL provisions within the 'knowledge of language and life' requirement for people seeking settlement in the UK and applying for British citizenship. As of April 2010, all learners are required to study ESOL with an accredited provider that has been approved by the UK Border Agency.  UCRA is running ESOL classes for refugees for free with additional support to progress into employment at its various centres.


Also, we are now also running a Train to Gain programme in order to respond to the needs of employers by up skilling employees especially those who do not possess a level 2 qualification.  The courses are funded by various bodies to include London Councils, UK Border Agency and Skills Funding Agency.
