A COLLEGE making staff redundant in East London because of funding cuts is getting Government cash to train people on the dole.
Tower Hamlets College is receiving a share of �100 million from Whitehall to train people who have been made redundant to help them back into work.
Further Education Minister Kevin Brennan said this week the Government would not stand by and “leave people without support.”
But it may seem a bit close to home for the college in Poplar which has had to make its own staff redundant and slash nearly half the classes for adults learning English as a second language because the Government’s Learning & Skills Council has reduced its income.
