Advice centre offers free social care course for refugees
Refugees who want to work in adult social care will be able to take a free introductory course run by an East London advice centre.
The course has been organised by Praxis, based in Pott Street, who provide support to immigrants and refugees from all over the world.
Education and employment adviser Fabricio Catroppa said: “A lot of nurses from Africa can’t qualify over here because they don’t have enough information about the job market, or enough UK work experience.
“We ran a similar course for 11 students. Five are now volunteering, with three in employment.
“We help them to get work experience and references. Often they can’t go back to their own countries for papers or references, so they have to start from zero.”
