Anglicare partners group to help students

National

ANGLICARE will be providing employment-ready programmes for 500 students under a partnership with an international development organisation next year.
Corporate manager Collin Andamale told The National that Anglicare had recently partnered with Montrose – a United Kingdom-based international development services company – to provide life skills to selected students with its adult literacy training programme through a bid by the NCD next year.
He said the target group was between the ages of 15 and 35.
The management of Anglicare was developing the curriculum.
Andamale said the Montrose life skills programmes would provide an opportunity for Anglicare’s literacy-skills students under the adult literacy training programme to continue on with their studies.
He said most of the students who completed their literacy training preferred finding a job instead of going back to Flexible Open Distance Education.
“Anglicare is embarking with this initiative because there is a gap in the literacy rate in the country and there are students not fully equipped with life skills to prepare them for the workforce,” Andamale said.
Anglicare has 600 students engaged under its literacy training programme in the NCD and about 3000 nationwide.
