  • Need

    Need

    Barnet is a borough having over 50.000 students & their parents, over 45% of whom are EAL children and ethnic minority families whose first languages are not English and naturally suffer from language adaptation and proficiency. The ratio of SEN students in both primary and secondary is around 35%, a significant number of parents are entitled to get a housing benefit and the facilities children have are very limited. The project aims to improve the life standards of those families.

    Solution

    Ethnic minority children will spend a really quality time in our centre to improve their reading, writing, arithmetic and creative thinking skills,and their mothers will be able to use the new Language, ICT and Life based skills they will learn in caring, teaching and helping their children as well as eventually having a job . The attendants will also contribute to the local economy as well, as one of the long term solutions against poverty and NEET (Not in Education, Employment or Training).

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    Educated families who will have the ability and skills to produce and create for their local area.

    Activities

    » English and Maths lessons for children.
    » ESOL, ICT and Skills for Life Courses for adults.

    Success will be seen when the children improve at least one sub-level in their exams and adults have new skills from confidence in speech to finding relevant jobs for themselves.


    Aim 2

    A well-developed generation considering the children who will take extra tuition and support.

    Activities

    » A quality supplementary education and dedicated teachers will help the children to reach our aim.

    Success will be demonstrated by the change of attitude of the students in the long term as well as their attainment in subjects.


    Aim 3

    Citizens who care their local needs more by taking part in the similar activities.

    Activities

    » We will attract the attention of voluntary people so that the number of philanthropist people will have increased.

    Success will be demonstrated when more people take part in voluntary activities.


  • Impact

    Impact

    As a result of the project, young people with English as an Additional Language, new arrivals, poor families, urban settings and crowded housing will all benefit in terms of speaking and writing in English confidently, having the skills to find jobs, learning computer literacy and increasing the standards of their lives by learning how to get access to facilities around.

    Risk

    Because this is a very well established project, there is not a possible risk identified, yet Axis has its own contingency plans to overcome any risk.

    Reporting

    There will be an ongoing monitoring and evaluation throughout the programme so by the help of teachers' assessment, general meetings, questionnaires and clear procedures to understand if the learning outcomes have been achieved, our donors will have all reports in their hands to evaluate the success

  • Background

    Location

    The project will be in Hendon. Thearea has over 50.000 students and their parents, over 45% of whom are EAL children and ethnic minority families whose first languages are not English and naturally suffer from language adaptation and proficiency. The ratio of SEN students in both primary and secondary is around 35% and in terms of the poverty, a significant number of parents are entitled to get a housing benefit and
    they have low life standards.

    Beneficiaries

    We will accept the participants mostly from poor families who need better opportunities for their development. Alongside this, by publicising this project we hope to reach more young people in need of rising horizons for the future. All of the families attending our project will be from backgrounds that definitely need extra support. Some are facing financial difficulties while children of others are in social isolation among peer groups because of their background.
