english & skills training program

FOR PEOPLE WITH DIFFERENT ABILITIES

 

 

WHY THIS PROGRAM?

In all aspects of life, particularly in the labor market and workplace, different-abled English Language Learners face a range of challenges. Unfortunately, they often do not receive adequate accommodation or have their individual circumstances considered. Moreover, there is a shortage of ESL classes available for learners with different abilities, especially those who also lack computer literacy skills. Therefore, success in today’s high-tech world demands proficiency in several tools that increase employability and quality of life. Fortunately, our English & Skills Training Program provides such proficiency to learners.

OUR APPROACH

To cater to People with Different Abilities, we design our English & Skills Training Program with an individualized (one-on-one) approach that suits their schedules and requirements. Our program is focused on delivering instructions that address language, skills training, culture, and different abilities to assist learners in overcoming obstacles and achieving their full potential. By providing learners with essential tools and skills, our program enables them to secure employment upon completion.

 WHAT WILL I LEARN?

We teach participants foundational computer skills, such as typing, sending emails, web search, etc., while also developing their English communication skills.

Upon successfully completing the English & Skills Training Program, we award learners a certificate for each component of the program.
